Aha... I thought it might be something like that. I may be a novice at woodturning but I've been a machinist and also used a watchmaker's lathe... which has more in common with turning wood than most folks would think!
Now... off to check the manual to see what kind of chuck will fit and where to find such a beast.
I didn't realize turning was going to be so much fun... I just got the lathe to make a Traveling Gavel for my Lodge! Instead of just buying one for $250 or more). But I really enjoyed making that mushroom.
Now my wife is making noises about how she's always wanted a matched set of wood salad bowls, too... At my skill level with wood, I'm not sure I can make TWO matched bowls yet, let alone SIX!
