    Thanks for your answers. I didn't take temp into consideration when I initially ran it through my head.

    Thanks John, yes I'm referring to the 2 part wood bleach. That's how I understand it Dick except it only affects soft maple.

    Wood Bleach on Ambrosia Maple

    Hello,

    I've used wood bleach on Flame Box Elder before with good results. Has anyone used it on Ambrosia Maple? If so, how did it turn out?

    Thanks

    Yes, you just need to enlarge the recess just enough on the sides and bottom to make it true again. The closer you can keep the recess to the closed jaw diameter, the better it will hold.

    Don't forget about chucks, classes, and other accessories. I like Thompson tools, but Sorby tools are good and cheaper to learn to sharpen. Hurricane tools and chucks are good for the price. I...

    I have a 1624 and love it. The spindle on any lathe should rotate freely with out the motor attached. If it is still new, take it back for service or replacement. If it is used and you can handle...

    All these work well. But remember if you use a solvent, you will need to reapply a rust preventative such as boeshield or woodworker lube, especially if you are turning wet wood.

    Harry,

    I wear an underarmour skull cap under my air shield pro and it eliminates the vibration. It was bothering me too when I first used it. A thicker hat would probably do more to reduce it.

    I would start with a sharpening jig and class if you don't have one. I found learning to turn was much easier once I learned to sharpen. That being said, $115 will probably not cover it all.
