I may have mentioned, my wife is a weaver and handspinner.
I'm in the process of designing some sort of simple turntable for un-spooling big cones of yarn in preparation for setting up the loom.
I'd like to make a cone-shaped spindle to match the inside of the cardboard yarn cones.
Somewhere I recall a jig for sizing dowels on a router table. Has anyone tried something similar for sharpening the end of round stock about 2 1/2 " dia down to about 1 1/4"?
I know someone will say lathe, but I just have an old salvaged clunker and no decent turning tools.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'm looking for quick simple solutions, because there are a lot more important projects on the list. (Me thinks I might have to bite the bullet and buy a roughing-out gouge -suggestions there would be welcome too.)
Thanks and best regards
