    i would have dug a hole so i could be at the right height rather than bend over to use the tools on it,, and he should have ran it faster and gotten a better finish

    From his position and the position of his turning tool---I hope he has brass you know whats. If not, he was flirting with eternal, excruciating, agony.

    I just cannot imagine anyone turning with HF turning tools on a piece that large, especially from his position.

    Enjoy,

    Agree, flirting with possible eternal pain.
    Tools should have been five feet long.

    I don't understand why he didn't run a PTO shaft off the back and grind some feed while he had the shaft turning. All that wasted fuel
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Nobody's mentioned the obvious safety glasses/face shield yet. No shield on PTO shaft--those things scare me; Dad lost a friend to one in the '50's.

    At 150 rpm, I wouldn't be too worried about anything blowing up. Even on a 13" diameter piece, that's pretty slow. It makes my back hurt just looking at his position while turning, though.

    I wouldn't have dug a hole Larry. The man has more than enough equipment kicking around that he could have picked it up to a good working height
    It could be worse You could be on fire.

    That and safety glasses!
