good video

Thanks, you can learn a lot from books, but nothing beats seeing it done up close. Nicely filmed, thanks again.

Another fantastic video. Very very helpful indeed. Thank you for taking the time to film and post it. Great job.

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

It's very helpful for us laboring over the lathe, to see something done so simply, and so incredibly well!

Thanks John!


...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?

Thanks John -- you covered so much more than using the parting tool in this video, the way you use the skew is also very helpful to me.

If you are taking requests ... ... I just bought a Penn State "hook nose scraper" to clean up the innards of bowls with a turned-in rim, but I don't have the first clue how to sharpen it. Do you have one of these, and if so how do you sharpen it?

Thanks again!

Your welcome, thanks for all the good responses. Always feel free to critic these and make suggestions. I'm still learning, especially how to make videos. My next one will either be using the spindle roughing gouge or using the new Hunter Hercules. Kind of depends on how much time I have. If you have other suggestions let me know.

Very nice video and filming. I had never heard of tilting the blade when making boxes.
