Re: 6" lathe spindle extenders

I have the 3", 8", and 12" extenders which I use for buffing. The 8" had threads that got worn and essentially stripped out. I tried to get another through Don Pencil, but found out that the 8" length was no longer available at that time. I liked the 8" length because the 12" is best suited to larger bowls. Perhaps someone knows whether aluminum threads can be "restored" when they are stripped. For really large bowls I resort to using an electric drill to mount the Beall buffs, but the drill does not spin fast enough to buff well.
