What is the correct size drill chuck for a Central Machinery 12 inch lathe? Anyone have suggestions for a good source for one? None of the Harbor Freights near me have them, and apparently, they do not have the ability to order specific items.
These are my first attempts at making bowls. The first was from a small chunk of firewood. The bigger one is from three pieces of 2x8s glued together, just to learn how to use the tools. I used a glue block screwed to a face plate for both.
I started on another bowl out of white oak firewood, still pretty wet. We got over 5 inches of rain last night, and its still raining 24 hours later. My shop flooded. Another lesson learned...clean up the pile of wood chips before you head to the house.
