    I started with a "big gulp" dust hood. I found that the little gulp, being smaller, concentrated the dust collection better. Both were under $20.

    The One way hood doesn't "look" particularly...

    Thanks again. I might make one out of steel or may buy one depending on the price.

    Over half the tools in my shop are from Harbor Fright. The vast majority work perfectly and "keep on ticking"

    Mike Kees, while it may be fun to shoot gophers, I suspect that my gophers are above ground (shoot-able) perhaps 2 or 3 minutes a day or night. In fact, in my entire life I've only seen gophers...

    William C Rogers, thanks for posting the picture of your spur drive. I hadn't seen one that was held in the chuck jaws. Interesting.

    My spur drive has a Morse taper so that the connection end is...

    I have tried the following along with my guestimate of how well they worked:
    1. Urinate in gopher hole - 3 or 4
    2. Empty cat's sandbox in gopher hole - 4
    3. Expensive smoke bombs - 2 if using...

    I bought one of them and liked it. It was adequately precise. But I got tired out from changing out the jaws so I bought another one. I have also have a Super Nova and it is on par with the griz...

    I took a closer look at my spur center and chuck(s).

    With the jaws moved out of the way, there is a recess of 2" diameter. The spur drive that I have probably would be able to fit into this...

    I have two of these chucks, so I checked the fit. My spur center wouldn't fit.

    The chuck is threaded for 1 x 8 tpi. The ID of the chuck thread is around 0.88".
    My 4 spur center (MT2) has a...

    Some wood turners gently slow down their lathe with their speed control before stopping and some will simply either flip the forward-reverse switch to off or abruptly turn the speed control down.

    I made my own wrenches for my lathe out of aluminum plate. I used either 1/4" or 3/16" and used a scroll saw to cut it. I use it for taking off my chuck and use another one for taking off an...

    Absolutely. Plus the spanner will eventually show up.

    I haven't seen it on sale, but sometimes people will post that they have a 10% (or something) discount code and they share that code.

    I took a cheap box fan and put a furnace filter on the input. When freshly cleaned, it blows fresh air on me as a wood turn and sand. When it plugs up, I can still feel a little breeze, but it is...

    Jerry, if you Google search it, you will find 46-408 manuals on eBay and Amazon for around $20. Perhaps some other SMC person will be able to help.

    A decade ago I had rotator cuff surgery to re-attach two torn tendons. When I was starting physical "terrorism" I went to a sporting goods store to buy a 1 pound weight. A cute 20-something year old...

    I have two of them. My lathe has a 1-1/4 x 8 spindle, so I used an adapter to get down to the 1" x 8 tpi of the chuck. I bought the first one because I wanted a set: screw chuck, 2-1/2" jaws, 5"...

    IIRC, there used to be fast blow (FB) and slow blow (SB) fuses. Because of the start-up current surge, pick up a box of SB fuses.

    I bought a bunch of inexpensive thin diamond disks for my dremel tool. Then I carefully run it all the way around the neck to put in a narrow and shallow groove. Then, holding the goblet end in one...

    Clarence, I don't have any first hand knowledge, but the Griz copy adapter works with at least 4 of their lathes ranging from around 11" swing to 18" swing. The only potential issue is that you may...

    Dan Gaylin, It is pretty easy to sharpen a Forstner bit. There are some videos on youtube. I remember one from Captain Eddie Castilien. If you have a diamond sharpener card/file and a steady hand...

    Mike Goetzke, yes, you could run in reverse and get a better view of what you're cutting. Also, you can probably get a more stable grip on your tools. Of course, you'll need to use a grub screw to...

    I agree with Jamie, IIRC Elm kind of stinks. If you've even changed a cat's sand box, the urine smell is somewhat similar to elm.

    For small diameter spindles that needs to be durable, I'd suggest learning how to use CA (superglue).

    I have used regular viscosity CA on pens and end up with an indestructible finish, with a...
