Turning while Sitting?

ChuckS
>Help-
I just got back from the Doc, & she tells me I need to stay COMPLETELY off of my ankle for the next couple weeks. I tore it up playing in the snow a couple months ago, and it has not healed yet. Anyhow, I guess I'm off work for a couple weeks & need to do someting to keep my sanity.

Has anybody had any success turning (safely) while sitting? I have a PM 3520 & also a Jet mini mounted on a table. Obviously I won't be turning any bowls or anything :-(

Normally, I try to move my whole body to control the chisel, and can't figure how to do this while sitting.

I remember a discussion about this not long ago, but cannot find it now.

Thanks!
