Turning Archive 2006
>Was introduced to this site from a sales guy at Lee Valley Vancouver, CND. It'll take me a while to sort through this massive amount of info and links, but what I'd like to know is has anyone got experience with turning pool cues?
I've got a Crafstman 12" lathe that I bought in the '80's when I was 16 or so, but the bed is only 32" long. I've got a Nova chuck, and have made a home-made lathe steady, but have no idea how to go about starting this project, such as suitable wood types, mounting the screw-in connector, and most importantly, maintaining a dead accurate and straight product. Any suggestions?
