You asked about more turning stuff on my site and I thought this might interest
It's a set of pictures of an oversize 7 weight bowl being turned..
Not quite finished with the text, but all the pictures are up..
Very impressive dude. I was looking at some of the lathes in the grizzly
catalog. What do you think of them? BTW, the first picture made me laugh
with the ash tray on the lathe. I was looking for the fire extinguisher

I looked at the 462 on the web...
That's a lot of features for the money and is almost too good to be true...
(Griz makes good saws but I tend to ignore their lathes)
The larger of my 2 Jet lathes is only 1 hp with 14" swing and not digital... and
with VRS and legs was about $900... so either Jet costs WAY too much for what
you get or something is missing on the Grizzly..
Could be weight or precision, not really sure, but I'd ask the group at
rec.crafts.woodturning before I bought one..
I went from 10" swing to 14" because 12" didn't seem like a big enough step up
and the 16" were all over $1,500....
I almost bought the 14" Delta but the reviews of it sucked and the Jet 1442 VS
good real good reviews...
Mostly that the folks in the wRECk talk about Griz saws and other tools, but
there is very little said about griz in the woodturning ng...
Lots on Jet and Delta, and powermatic and stubby for those with the budget, but
probably more mention of Crapman lathes that griz..
Could be a peak rating, I've never looked into that... mine might be, too..
The Jet mini is a great lathe for most folks at a little over $200, but a lot
less capacity and power than the one you're looking at.. I think it has a 1/4
I still use mine a lot.. great lathe..
that's like saying that you don't think the folks here would know much about a
new Dodge.. *g*
Check the reviews.. Amazon sells a ton of grizzly stuff.... when I bought the
riser kit for my band saw from them, it was shipped FROM griz..
Depending on what you want to do, the tools can be a lot of bucks..
A decent set of chisels for $30 to $100 is all you "really" need...
The chuck on my mini was $190... almost the price of the lathe.. *g*
I just spent another $200 or so building a vacuum chuck system and I don't even
want to know how much I've spent on chisels, sanders, oils, buffing systems,
etc. in the last year or so, but probably more than I'll make this year selling
Well, it's a DAMHIK item, Ken, but for you...
I had a big bowl on the lathe and used thick, slow drying CA on all the cracks..
forgot or didn't know about CA accelerator...
Started the lathe and tried to rough sand the bowl and it not only threw CA all
over me and the lathe but started smoking when I hit it with the sandpaper and
might of caught fire and made napalm if I kept going..
I've done things like that myself. I'm remodeling my house and I finished
laying tile in the second bathroom yesterday. After all that time working
with the tile saw I just learned why it's a good idea to keep the blade
guard set down very low. A wet saw with a high guard makes a clay speckled
Educate me, larry... long time since my druggie days...
Watz a hash bowl?
I experimented with drugs, but I didn't exhale..
