harrysin Michael, you are sorting through the archives! I do have a tutorial posted by my friend Jim Jakosh, an extremely clever man, on Lumberjocks forum and will one day make one. I actually attempted to post it a couple of nights ago but couldn't find a way to post an HTML file, perhaps someone can advise me.

marvmn Neat bowl jig you use. I use a home made longworth chuck but your jig looks very secure. Have you tried a longworth chuck? and if so which do you prefer?

Maurice Very well done Harry and a great job. You can call yourself a "pro" now
Don't stop trying to outdo yourself, that's how you improve.

I'll keep trying, but if you have any thoughts I sure would like to hear them

With green wood I soon found that the chuck needs to be tightened several times during the turning. Being no expert, I don't know if all chucks have tapered jaws like mine shown here.

really nice work

I love to see work like this and I am so jealous not that I might not be able to do it - that is true -but I never seem to get the time ,as woodwork is my job I seem to face every job as though I am earning bonus and time is money .I bought a small lathe about eight years ago ,made a piece from Teak for a boat and that is all I have had time for .One day .That is what I tell myself
Keep up the good work and post the projects so I can imagine

BernieW I can't figure it out James. They just don't seem to have a sense of humor.

Bernie, I am trying to teach our budgie to say "yes dear". SHMBO cannot see anything amusing in that...
