    I've watched about 17 minutes into the first one, very interesting and informative; I'll continue over the next week or so.

    I too use a set of Cole or Bowl Jaws like Barry McFadden and Alex Zeller, however you can also modify these for certain jobs that require delicacy.

    I have used a Jet 1642 quite a few times over a few years and noted that it has the ability to slide the headstock. If your particular lathe has that feature, then you may consider sliding the...

    I've learnt to live with it, more or less.

    I turn a reasonable amount of wet wood, doing some right now. One thing I found out with a large blank of Oak that was on the lathe for three days, the...

    Barry, I certainly should have looked inside the headstock, but as it was really cold (Winter Solstice in 2 days) and dark, I didn't investigate thoroughly. What threw me though, was that the outside...

    Thank you, I'll keep my current lights as they certainly work very well for me.

    I take your point and have used this work action when working in railway line systems around 45 years ago. Also, when fabricating steel, I've used rivets, nothing countersunk with them.
