Any risk using a Vicmarc 120 chuch on a 1221 Jet lathe. Was talking to a lad last week that said its too heavy for the bearings of the lathe. But been using it for the last year no issues

maybe he meant that what the chuck could itself carry could be too much? it weighs less than 4KG, and i've put quite a bit more - unbalanced - weight than that on my 1221.

Ya maybe so. I assume there is no risk with using a larger chuck (assuming your not holding 20kg lumps of timber in it!!)

Are you using it with an insert?

No. It's an M33 and so is the lathe. Why do you ask?

If you were using it with an insert, they tend to bring the chuck further out from the spindle and the weight then would definitely have an effect on the bearings. Should be okay if it's direct thread.

Oh ya, of course, that's very true. It'd be a lot of weight hanging off the end it!! Lever and fulcrum point or something to that effect!! Good shout

Anyone been to the RDS this week? See 10 or so turners demonstrating there. Wonder is it worth the trip?

Definitely. Haven't been up there but my good friend Glenn Lucas is up there. As is Willie McCutcheon, another good turner.

There was a little too much of everything at the rds in a sense - too many people selling similar products, so a bit of a paradox of choice. I'm not just talking about woodturners.

I met Glenn and had a nice talk with him. A gentleman of the highest order.
Regards to the rest, I actually didn't enjoy the show at all, but for a very silly reason.
i went with No intention of buying anything, I just wanted to look at the furniture and bowls and talk to the makers. Just discuss their processes and how they got into the craft. But they're after paying €3,000 for the stall, so once they realise your not buying they really want rid of you out of their way, as they really need to push sales and make the most of the time they are there. To the point that a lot of them come across dickish.
So it's more my fault for going and expecting a demo/open-shop feel to it rather than what it is.

the christmas dublin flea market is on this coming weekend, and my wife reckons she's seen at least a few of the exhibitors at the RDS fair at previous fleas - and she reckons their prices were lower at it, presumably because they've not paid through the nose for a stand.

Anyone any thoughts here, any saving this? Rough turned it 6 weeks ago and been in a kiln since. Cracks were nearly there on day 1. It's reading about 13/14% moisture.
What's best way (or is there anyway) to finish it off?

I'd be for saving it alright, how even is the thickness? the how? well a filler made with sawdust and white glue would probably work out alright, simply rechuck, turn to finish size, sand and save sawdust, fill cracks, sand and finish.

Ya I was thinking about something like that. I've seen lads do things with resin online but no experience of it myself.
