  1. That was not my video, I was just sharing it. Planning is the operative word when designing sectional chucks, the #1 piece has to be able to fit through the opening of course. My Grandpa used to tell me of how he once spun a silver sphere with out any seam. I wish I would have learned more from him.
  2. Just a thought, this could almost be a skype moment. (or other video chat such as gmail) I could set up a bowl pattern on the lathe and go from there. My favorite thing to do, well, one of my favorite things, is to put a spinning tool in the hands of someone who has never seen it done, the look on their eyes.. I gave a spinning workshop to a wood turners club once, Within those who dared give it a try there was a complete range of abilities. A concept they find early is that the pressure applied to the metal by the spinner is not constant through the process.
