Re: Thanks John, but quite easily?

It really doesnt take long. The spindle length on my smithy ist long enough to reduce the full length. It also isnt very beefy so .020" per pass is about all it will do. So.about 6 or 7 passes is all it takes. Then i lower the head and readjust so the cutter just touches the turned part od the shaft and then reduce that diameter. Took me longer than it shoukd because im such a beginner machinist.
