Turning Archive 2008
>I try to make the most of warm weather so I spent about 6 hours each day in the shop. Turned 36 wine stoppers and cut out 40 mirror blanks and handles and mounted waste blocks on them. In between I made new drive center for roughing out green bowls. I wanted longer smaller diameter pins that will penetrate the bark or dig in better on punky wood. I'll let you know how it works out.
I also added a small rare earth magnet to my pin chuck. No more dropping the pin on the floor and losing it. Well actually you can drop it but you have to work a lot harder to lose it.
