    Bernie -- You can do anything you want. Uniform wall thickness is desirable only because otherwise the turned object's weight may feel 'off' in your hands. Humans are very good at how much an object...

    Richard -- I completely agree! As I said, I'm trying hard not to argue in favor or against any administration's policies. Those policies have economic benefits and burdens. They tend to increase or...

    Roger -- I mentioned a policies from the prior administration and from the current administration because I didn't want this to become a political debate -- with all the nastiness that today's...

    For 90+% of what I turn, a 12" swing is more than adequate. There are a number of reasons for this: First, I live in Arizona, where large wood is scarce. I can get it, but it's a lot more effort than...

    There are a number of causes of higher tool prices. Most of them are largely the cause of government policies -- either here or elsewhere. For example, the prior administration imposed steel tariffs,...

    I installed a Mr. Cool DYI unit in my shop last summer. It was not nearly as difficult an install as I had feared. In fact, it wasn't difficult at all. I've been very happy with it. Mine came with...

    Very cool. I bought a bunch of metal rings several years ago. Still haven't gotten around to actually turning any. It's on my increasingly long list of things to try.

    Those are interesting. The decorations are reminiscent of today's body art. They also remind me of scrimshaw. Today's scrimshaw, like today's body art, is much more elaborate than the examples from...

    Dave -- If you have a Thompson skew, try that as your NRS. I have reground most of my scrapers into a negative rake profile, but my favorite NRS for outside curves is a Thompson 1" skew. I use it...

    Dave -- This is a great series. Perhaps one of the moderators could enshrine it into a 'sticky post'. I'm sure many of us would like access to it in the future.

    Jerry -- It really depends on what you want to turn. For spindles and smaller things, the Powermatic 45 may be your better option. However, the Jet is more flexible. It has a sliding and pivoting...

    David -- You didn't miss anything in the video. He didn't provide a before and after CFM (or other performance) measurement. In his defense, he was replacing the internal filter, rated MERV 14, with...

    I have not worked in a shop lined with steel, but, I, too, would be concerned with the noise factor. I used 1/2" sanded ply to line the walls of my shop. I like the look. I particularly like the...
