Thats what I am talking about........seems to be better options outside of Ireland, all the time.
I tried to give my business to home grown suppliers, but they cant even be bothered to reply to my e mails. Even though I would be spending mucho sheckles here.
I'll give that guy an e mail and see how things go.
Lathe is a centauro, had it for about 20 years. Thread size is M39 4pitch.Total length including outboard 12' I think.
Chuck would be large size as opposed to smaller. Bowl work from 22 " diameter inboard to 44" diameter outboard. Motor 3 hp with a Variable frequency drive controller.
Magic bit of kit.
Currently using a 3 jaw chuck which has catapulted the last 2 bowls this week,
upwards and outwards due to holding only by jaws. One yew one ash.
Needless to say I am pulling the last of my hair out. I am currently working on a 15" diameter monkey puzzle bowl...........fingers crossed.
