    BTW - The walnut oil finishes I am aware of are treated to address concerns about allergies. I use Mahoney's Oil Walnut. Walnut oil is a great looking natural finish and it's easy to use.

    Thanks Reed I've not seen Woodturner 21 before and it's pretty humbling. Like a lot of turners I also struggle with the skew and I've not seen anyone use one quite like this - especially in cutting...

    Thanks John, this makes sense. Since the slides should all be matched in their movement relative to the diameter of the chuck body, the jaws should be able to be mounted at any beginning position as...

    Thanks for the replies.

    Since the Nova jaws almost always come with the 50mm jaws I'll compare different sets. I guess I'll just play around with them and see if everything runs true. They do...

    Thank you Neil,

    I tend to use faceplates for things that fit but I like the quick change a screw chuck offers when turning multiple small to medium size items. I like the idea of a dedicated screw...

    Thanks David,

    I can see myself using the smaller face for small ornamental items. The plywood disk is a good idea.

    Hi John, I hope you are well,

    The quality of the screw is what initially caught my eye. I agree that the Nova threads are coarse and a little difficult to get started sometimes. Screw lube helps....

    FWIW,
    I cut down the tubes on an old Shopsmith and use it as a variable speed disc sander and buffing station. They sometimes shoe up on the local Craig's list for low prices.

    What Dave said.
