    I have a lathe but have never used it. I got it second hand. I need to invest in some router tools and play with it.

    A better title for this video would be "3:28 minutes of mumbling with a lathe running in the background".

    Great job, I have lathe envy, I love watching you make things on it :), my granddad's lathe is at my brother's house I am so tempted to have a go now, but what to make?  Hmmmm will get thinking cap on 🙂

    Great recovery from a bad situation. Glad to see that you were not hurt when the gouge broke.

    AHHGGG! I typed a big long comment, and it was erased when the vid ended again! Nice handle. It's hard to find a decent piece of ash. Anyhow, my comment went something like this…  

    Ha! The top o' the pile problem! I've noticed that you mentioned making a "to do" list for future vids. I do that too, but I've found that it reduces stress if you don't adhere to it too strictly. Vids just tend to pop up as impromptu ideas for me, and I'm now learning to just go with it. I've been working on the same two main vids for three months now, and although I've released a bunch in the meantime, I've made little progress on my primary mission videos (the ones that I actually care about). Anyhow, I'm sure that my lecturing/advice is of little value, so let me just say that your videography is coming along beautifully.

    One more thing, and sorry to go on for so long, but what is the four-jawed chuck at the beginning called? I want one so badly, so any advice about where/what to buy would be great, because I'm sure we share similar needs in such a thing. I have improvised a chuck like this in the past from wood, similar to how noho91 did, but it is time to upgrade.

    You shouldn't have to worry about breaking that one! I'm glad you didn't get hurt.
    Take care,

    So you just shoved the gouge into the ash hole?

    Yeah I wasn't freaked out by the lathe enough already, now I get to worry about exploding tool handles.  Thanks a bunch!  😉  Actually I don't think my lathe has enough power to snap a toothpick.

    Hey Peter:
    I didn't hear a name for this one… looks like a formidable weapon! And should serve you well!
    Amazing where projects come from isn't it?
    Thanks for sharing

    I am going to the fridge now to see what bottles I can get used up. That is a great reuse idea.
