need help with terminology about turning

I'm in the throes of adding "lathe tools" to my glossary, and would really appreciate any corrections and/or suggestions. I've made up a separate page with just the lathe tool terms, here:

it also has some comments and my email address for suggestions, plus a pointer to the whole glossary in case you haven't seen that yet. It's still a work in progress but it's up to 1700+ terms now with 300+ illustrations.

Thanks in advance for any help.


You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

Don't know if I can be of any help other than to say thanks for bringing all of that information together in one place.

That looks like an excellent resource for turners and wannabees like myself. Thanks for your efforts.

OOps! I must have broken it 'cause it is now a 404. Check your linking in your webserver. At least I hope that is what it is. I could use it right now.
