I ran across a article on how to build an elbo type tool. This is my version of that. I have only used it on one HF and it is not finished. I still have to do some fine tuning but I think it is going to work pretty well. Let me know what you think. This is not a hard build but does require some good square drilling. I used bronze bushing for the pivot points. I know that they will not last as long as ball bearings would but my budget is tight. I have about $30 in the project. Since these pics were taken I have added a laser attachment.
I will get some pics of that and post later. My son Jeff thought I should post this as he posted my captured hollowing rig that I built. The plans that I used are found here. http://www.bayouwoodturners.com/dece...steelsnake.pdf
