I am getting ready to glue up a rather large cutting board: 24x48, finished size 23x38. Will need to trim some splits off the ends. In the past, I've use pipe clamps and alternated them top and bottom. This time I'm using parallel jaw clamps. Do they need to be alternated as well?
Lew, you asked to see what my glue ups looked like before I turned them. I couldn't find the ones I wanted but did find one of my glue ups for another table top project. Boards over and under during cutting and then swapped. I also get ideas as I assemble for cutting for glue ups. I have others turning pictures, can't locate them
I have already posted a lot about this at the introduce yourself site, they suggested I try here. I'm trying to turn a walnut bowl it is approx 12" long and 7" wide. It won't turn true. I've tried taking faff just a tiny amount and a larger amount and it seems to remove the wood evenly but leaves one area shallower than the rest.When I try to use the 4 jaw chuck I get a large vibration. I got some good suggestions at the intro site, but thought maybe here someone else might give me the aha! to the problem. Oh yeah one other side issue. Does anyone know what diameter I need for the Grizzly Go584 tailstock handle.( when I go to Grizzly it won't pull this model up).I want to try and get a metal handle. My plastic one has broken down to just the plastic piece over the piece of metal it connects to. There seems to be a set screw, but it won't accept any allen wrenches and i would swear it isn't stripped but is flat. Strange. Right now I'm using a pr of vise grips as a handle. I'll have to crack it to get it off. I guess i could measure the rod it attaches to after it breaks off
