i have made a lot of calls. you can buy the guts online through HUT i think penn state industries may carry them as well. you are going to want to make some mandrels, i started with wood and than had a custom metal expanding one made. HUT i believe sells a started kit for turning game calls!!!! they are fun to make! tuning them can become an issue but if you know what sound you are looking for you shouldn't have a problem

YOU can turn one out of wood and cut o rings in to hold the place, but they tend to break and you have to start over making another one i got frustrated and had one made. i chuck the one i have now and use my live center to make sure it is running true! than i take the piece of wood slide it on tighten the screw and it will not move!!

I have done several from Craft Supply. They mention using a mandrel but they are easily done between centers.

you can def turn them between centers, but in my opinion in order to get a quality sanding job on the inside the call a mandrel is the way to go. you can take that piece and flip it around to really get both ends really well. unless you are an experienced turner than a mandrel is the way to go. thats just my opinion

Do you allready own a Nova chuck? Just buy a set of pin jaws for it.

Another option is to make a pin chuck.
