New Lathe

I finally went out spent the bucks and bought myself a new 46-460 and a Oneway sharpening system. Then I built a bench to put it on and I started turning. I'm hooked and I have been caught up in the vortex. I've done 4 turning and I was very satisfied with the results but now I'm having problems. Catch after catch to the point of ripping the piece off the tendon and or breaking the bowl in half. I did buy a video and watch it on turning and this started after I watch it and I have changed the sharpening the gouge to the fingernail method. I guess it's time I join a club or take a class. Here's a few pictures of the set up and my turning. CC is welcome.

Awesome work. Congrats on the new toys......um tools. Great looking turnings.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

I do use the tailstock when I can and you are probably right about learning. Thanks

I still catch sometimes too. Expecially when I'm hollowing out a bowl going from the side to the bottom. It's either a dull tool or I didn't have it angled right. I still need some more practice.

Nice bowls for your first ones. A class is in my mind a very valuable investment...you'll not be sorry if you take one.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...
