    I looked at their website and I saw this as one of the tool post length options:

    So, you shouldn't have a problem. This...

    Michael, thanks for the reference to the seller. The link didn't seem to work, but on ebay I entered (with an added "p") sharpshooterbilliards and found the seller. Interesting and quite an...

    I bought 4 2x2x12" walnut spindle blanks (just like you have) and I glued them together to make a 4" diameter x 12" high ogee-curved big vase. I made it to accept a 1" glass test tube so that I...

    Mid-range on a HF reeves drive lathe is probably around 1500 RPM? If you had cracks in it, perhaps that high speed on a decent-sized bowl was just too much. I turn medium-sized pieces and I have...

    Stark, a suggestion...perhaps if you indicated which model of Grizzly lathe you have perhaps someone would respond. I don't know if you can revise the title. But if not, then at least add the model...

    It is hard to understand exactly how adding a relay would do much without knowing how the relay was hooked up and the other components.

    I have a Thomas vacuum pump that can move about 3.5 cubic...

    David's suggestion is good. I will sometimes use painters tape but if I want to be safer, I'll wrap it with filament tape (the stuff that has fiberglass ? strands in it).

    Mine goes down to around 60. If I fiddle with it I sometimes get to 50 rpms. If they haven't changed the inverter defaults, you may have an issue with the speed control pot. They cost less than 5...

    3/4 x 16 is or was a thread used on smaller lathes. You can buy a chuck for 3/4 - 16. I didn't understand the comment about the "drive" being 1/2 in dia.

    With your current faceplate and the...

    My first lathe was a Craftsman 9" lathe for $75. Its slowest speed was 950 rpms. It was fine for turning spindles, goblets and smaller things. When I mounted a larger diameter piece on it,...

    I've filled gaps with CA, epoxy and PVA glue. They all work. I will fill/color with sawdust, wood flour, enamel, transtint, coffee grounds, glitter.

    I had an old Shopsmith 10ER. I always considered it a "jack of all trades, master of none". I ended up using it primarily as a drill press. Occasionally I would use it as a 12" disk sander. I...

    Bill,
    BTW, for your 120 volt circuits, hopefully you wired them so about half use one phase and the other half use the other phase - - that is, kind of balancing the load. One of the benefits of...

    I don't think that the 30A 220V circuit in the same box as the other stuff is the issue. But, if I am correctly interpreting your post, you appear to be using a single 20A breaker (presumably a 220...

    I read on the SMC finishing section that DNA was outlawed in California earlier this year.

    I periodically use DNA with BLO and shellac. Also, I thin my shellac with DNA as a sealer.

    I have a 2 HP dust collector with a Thien baffle. It works GREAT at pulling in power sanding dust from my lathe. But it doesn't do a whole lot for large chips.
