My daughter got me a couple of wood turning gifts for my birthday. One was a pizza cutter and the other was a measuring cup set. All required me to turn handles. I have posted the pizza cutter, it came out nice. The measuring handles were set up to be turned on as a pen would..........I had none of the required equipment and have no desire to make pens. I went to Youtube (Sam Angelo) and found a way to do it without any more new lathe parts. I turned a wooden headstock piece to mount the workpiece on (not sure what to call it) you can see in the first picture in the chuck. It worked fine and I was very surprised that it did with only minor slippage. I intend to use different colored woods for each of the others so if you see a red handle, you will automatically know it is a half cup measure. I do have a question. When doing the final assembly......should I use glue or will the force fit be OK?
