No Longer Here, BY CHOICE
Is This Safe
So the wife came through for me. She came home over the weekend from a Christmas shopping trip and said theres a box to big for me to carry so you have to get it. It was the lathe I asked for!! Nothing special, just the Harbor Freight 5 speed mini but its a start and I'm way excited to finally be able to turn things!!
So, I've spent the last couple days watching YouTube videos trying to educate myself before I get to use this baby and made an observation. Many guys will screw a waste block on to thier faceplate or put a wasteblock into the chuck and then hot glue thier work piece to it. Is this safe!?! I have a hot glue gun because it comes in handy for various things but for some reason it just seems to me like the work piece should come flying off of there. One video, a kid glued up a very unbalanced piece of a log and turned a bowl out of it. I thought for sure that thing was gonna take his head off before the video ended. Is this common practice?
