Thread: Ya' gotta love your MIL.........

    Ya' gotta love your MIL.........

    My generous MIL gave me a nice Christmas present again this year. I bought the new PM3520B last fall. Accessorizing it was a financial problem. Mom made it a little easier. With the money she gave me for Christmas I was able to buy a 1" post for my Sorby modular tool rest, a tall secondary rest for my Jamieson captured hollowing rig and today my new Crown Pro-PM Ellsworth bowl gouge arrived. I was surprised as the grind I have on my 3/8" Robert Larson bowl gouge pretty well imitated the one that came on the Crown Ellsworth. I used the rest of the Christmas money to buy some more 2" sanding disks.

    With the new post for the tool rest and the new tall secondary tool rest for the Jamieson....I can use either tool on the Jet Mini or the Mustard machine.

    Thank you Mom!
    Ken

    I figured you had to be talking about YOUR MIL, not MINE

    Cheers!

    Congrats Ken. You are going to like the Modular tools rest. It makes hollowing a lot easier. I use my Ellsworth gouge a lot. It is pretty much my go to for bowls.

    Hey, Ken...

    How about posting a picture of the Jamieson rig with the secondary tool rest for us.

    George,

    You bet I'll post a photo after I take one. I'm cleaning the shop right now and it would be a good time to get it. I'm going to get a 2nd coat of paint on 1/2 of the walls this evening and tomorrow start installing my DC.

    I got to say I have never used a Ellsworth gouge but I do love my Thompson gouges.
