Tape #33

Mike Darlow: #4

Run Time: approx. 20 minutes

In this video Mike shows some faceplate turning. He first talks about preparing the blanks for the lathe. He also describes chucking methods, such as screw chucks and faceplates. Mike turns a small base of sorts using a inch spindle gouge and shows how to use a pencil gauge to create a pre-determined shape. He shows how to use the gouge to create coves, radiuses, and ogee shapes.
I like this tape; although very short, it was informative in the use of a inch spindle gouge.
