I'm planning to build a D handle captive hollowing rig and I need a bit of help. I'm going to use 3/4" round stock because I've got about 10' of it on hand. I'm planning on making the handle with a coupling on the end to attach various length boring bars to the business end. I think that's the most traditional method and gives the most flexibility unless someone has a better idea. I'm open to suggestions at this point.
I'm kinda stumped at this point on the dimensions. What's the average dimensions for these type handles? For those who own one, if you could, would you change the dimensions of yours or do you have any other ideas? BTW, This is for a full size lathe with a 12" swing.
