    Galbert Caliper

    I bought one and think it's awesome! Now, for many items, I can simply use just one measuring device and sneak up on the correct diameter. I highly recommend it for all types of spindle work.

    Chuck Mounting

    Whenever you use a chuck, it is critical that two surfaces make good contact with the piece. The faces that contract or expand to grip the wood; and the faces of the jaws that face the tailstock. You...
