Hi guys.....newbee here, been reading your forums for a while now and finally deceided to join up.
Been learnin', and turnin' for a couple of years now, started with canes, then moved to stoppers, pendants, 'fridge magnets, small bowls and now working on perfecting "pet urns>
A short while back I read where someone was inquiring about PVC threads for lids on boxes and urns...............I tried it and it works.
Go to the "Woodturning Online" site, then to the Turning Projects, then LIds, then the article on "Quick & Easy threaded inserts for urns by Brad Adams.
In Illinois you won't find the black ABS fittings because the plumbing codes do not allow the use of this product, but they can be purchased at Aubuchon Hardware on the internet.
I've tried the white PVC you can find in any hardware store, but they don't look as good as the black ABS.
Caution....turn the ABS slowly when cutting as it tends to start melting if it gets to hot.
