  1. When it does stop working I would look into an inverter duty motor and frequency drive. Might be cheaper than what they charge to fix it and a lot better speed control.
  2. You can buy a inverter duty motor and VFD for around $240.
  3. I have turned quite a few acrylic pen blanks. I have found it easier to use regular tools. With carbide tools I have trouble with them taking out a big chunk when they start to get thin. Never had that problem with regular tools.
  4. Sometimes I will wear a glove on my left hand, the one close to the rest. Some of the dust coming off hard woods can be very hot.
  5. Also I bought a cheap paint pot to use for a pressure pot. You can make one pretty cheap like that.
  6. Carl Jacobson on YouTube has done some and they didn’t have a hard core.
  7. Going to be hard to get rid of the bubbles. Try to get some cheap bowling balls. They are resin and make great bowls.
  8. Which program do you use to make them?
  9. My first turning was a pen. I made a lot of pens before I got into bowls.
  10. You got screwed. I will give you $50 for it so you can get some of your money back. 😀 Great find. I wish I ran into deals like that.

    First Turn

    You are hooked now. All it takes is turning that first piece then it becomes an addiction.
