The reason I’m interested in Wood-Lathes & Turning Techniques is that I intend to “turn” my Walnut bases for my Wildfowl Woodcarvings! I’m now the proud owner of a “Gifted” Central Machinery Wood-Lathe which is about 10 years old. It happily came to me with about 10 cutting tools. I just today downloaded the Owner’s Manual from the Internet. So far as I now know, I lack a Wood-Chuck and a Tool Stand for the Lathe. Any ideas about where I can come by these “cheaply” or “better”? Lots of new stuff for me to learn. Any tips are more than welcome.


Happy birding and carving, Bill
