    Bob, Although I remember seeing those years ago, I'm not familiar with how they work. the taper of the diameter might be a problem, just not sure.

    I am a big Stuart Mortimer fan myself and do spiral work on a Ligno lathe, sometimes using the Avisera compound slide, as per photo. (the lamp has a low wattage LED bulb in it and lights up well). This is my first time to use the site, so, apologies if I have not used it correctly.

    I made an attachment like the router crafter from sears to fit on my sawmill. I cut up to 20 foot long twisted squares or octogones.

    Colin,
    When making a comment or reply, look for a selection above in the shape of a square. That should say "insert image", and clicking on it will give options on where and which pictures you wish to add. Please show what you have made on the woodturning forum, so we all can enjoy.
