Sat 5th Feb – When I was turning the ebony finiale on lathe for the Candy Dish project I experienced some chattering. Since then I removed the headstock and inspected the bearings one of which is definitely worn. Having order a pair of SKF replacements I wait to start another adventure in wood turning. This month’s Woodturning Design mag contains a feature article on making pendants from wood scraps. This link will show you what I mean
I have ordered this backer plate so that I can try my hand at this since I have quite an accumulation of small pieces of attractive woods and two of my daughters sell jewelry.
