Our very own Vaughn McM took some time out of his family visit to swing by for a little test drive on the little delta. He was kind enough to bring some wood for me to play with, rough turn my alltime favorite SW style HF (which is a paradox as I've never seen a pottery form like this one turned by a handful of different guys) And pointed out that my nova chuck was not running true because it was not flush on the spindle face. Enclosed are pics of the above, but as much or more time was spend yacking about the neighborhood, mutual associates and friends, guitars and BBQ. Awesome turner, and an all around awesome nice guy! I guess Im going to have to go to the delta 46-461 chuck, but what baffles me is that it is made by technatool. 2 different 1x8 inserts did not work. Technatool support had no specifics either??? Twirled it on a jet down at woodcraft, and it snugged right up. All/any help short of modifying a brand new lathe is very welcome.
Thanks Vaughn, you rock dude!
