    Well done Steve. You laid out the tutorial very well. I think I do mine pretty much the same way. I do like your donut chuck. I've been using my vacuum chuck and a tailstock adaptor(screw the chuck onto it while it's in the tailstock) to keep everything aligned. I think your tutorial should go down into the articles section or at least be a "sticky" here in the turners section.

    Thumbs up Steve,

    that was a great presentation you gave- very well done and informative- I think that is very thoughtful of you to take the time to put this all together for those of us that don't do HF's and share your knowledge with us. It is people such as yourself that make this forum what is has become today- thank you very much for giving your personal presentation Steve ~ great touch!

    HF's

    Nice job and it couldn't come at a better time. Just got a Mini Monster Hollowing System and will try my 1st one this weekend (after attending a demo by Alan Lacer in Pensacola). Questions - in what order are the tools used? There is one piece of metal included in the system that is 2"x 3/4"x3/4" with a 3/8" hole through it and a set screw in the side - what's it for? Thanks.

    Thanks again everyone for your kind comments! I am really glad that so many of you have found something helpful in the tutorial!

    Bill - not really sure (without a pic) which piece of metal you are taking about. If I had to take a guess - the metal would have a 3/8" opening that is actually at an a 45* angle with respect to the support shaft. It is designed to hold whatever cutting bit you want and get up under the shoulder/collar area of the hollow form. If you can include a photo I would be more than happy to assist in figuring out how to use it - or - PM Randy and he will let you know the purpose of the tool in question.

    Harold, DNA stands for De-Natured Alcohol.

    That was just great Steve! Very detailed, and must have been quite time consuming. Thanks so much for sharing that with us. Ron

    Steve,
    Great tutorial and couldn't have been better timing. I sent my check to Randy for the Articulated Arm. I will use your tutorial to help me get started.

    Thanks again for a wonderful job!

    Steve: I think this was the most concise and informative tutorial on HF's that I have seem. I picked up some nice tips that should help me doing HF's without going through the side.Thanks for all the time and effort you put in. It paid off well!...Bill...
