    Stupid, Stupid, Stupid!

    You might recall my asking about a problem I was happening with my vacumn chuck.

    At the stage I was talking about, The chuck was inside the bowl and I was rmoving tennon and finalizing the outside.

    The solution is Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo easy! Bring up the TAIL STOCK, Dummy and knock off the nib that's left.

    Bruce, I have a vacuum chuck, but I'd say about 90% of the time I finish the bottom of a piece as you described...tailstock, nub, done.
