    Enjoy this idea

    I'm no turner but that technique looks quite scary to me. It must generate a lot of vibration on the lathe. THe idea is great though, the use of urethane foam to hold the piece and make the sides of the box(jig) slanted so it can be reused is great.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    NOT a beginner's technique eh

    Quite the lathe he has, and he has some serious skills too. It is often these guys that push the limits that make the really unique stuff, I applaud his ingenuity!

    I am diggin the soundtrack for sure.
    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.

    Very cool. The Steinert Maximo is one hoss of a lathe, so I doubt vibration was much of an issue. (Notice he's turning off the side of the lathe. That'd send most other lathes into a frenzy.) I also like the idea of using the foam as a chuck. I do think I'd want to be wearing a bit more face protection, though.

    very inventive..............not sure I would ever try it but still interesting to see
    First you have to learn the rules - Beginner
    Then you have to learn advanced rules - Professional
    Then you disregard the rules - This takes you to the master level................

    That's for sure... My little 1442 will turn outboard to the side and even though it's weighted with about 200 lbs of sand and I also added a cabinet of drawers under the ways to hold chucks, tools, etc... it still will dance a little when I put something outboard that's out of balance.... and I CERTAINLY would have more face protectiion --- been there done that!
