Turning Archive 2006
Bill Grumbine (Kutztown PA)
After many years of lusting after a dental light for the lathe, I have finally acquired one, courtesy of a very kind dentist who is also a woodturner. I installed it temporarily over the Vega bowl lathe to ascertain the range of motion, and it looks real good where it is at, with one small caveat. The post depending from the beam in my roof is just a bit too long. I have been corresponding with my dentist friend, and he does not think it would be a problem to cut some of the post off, but I was wondering if anyone else here had encountered a similar problem - those of you with dental lights, assuming there is anyone else here with one.
Any other tips or experiences would be appreciated as well.
