Turning Archive 2005
I'm almost done with the hollowinh system I've been putting together. The system is based on the Jamieson system in the Craft Supplies catalog.
The last thing I have to do is weld the collor that holds the boring bar onto the stabilizer handle. Then it occurred to me that, since I've never used or even seen used this system, I don't know which way the handle should face when captured in the secondary tool rest. Should the boring bar side be closest to me at the lathe or should the outrigger side be closest? I don't necessarily trust the photo in the catalog.
Please help a brother out, and thanks.
