Subject:
I made a new tool

Mike Schwing
I'm very pleased, and yes it is VERY long. Bought the Robust quick change chuck and made a handle out of thick walled aluminum, welded a solid chunk in and compression fit the robust chuck into it. Turned the end and use a set screw in case I want to put another chuck on the other end. Of course it had to be powdercoated Ravens blue (with "Disco Nights" as a topcoat). It is the same diameter as my Hosaluk handle but looks a lot wider.

About to turn with it for the first time but DANG I'm going to love how convenient is is to change gouges. Comments welcomed. Thx for lookin'.
