There is a thread on Japanese tools in Tool Talk and someone mentioned that the Japanese turn on the bottom of the blank. I got curious and found this video on Youtube,   Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register
I really thought it was interesting that he only used a jam chuck and his tool rest wasn't fastened down.

Once the become a journey men turner they usually only turn one type of item.  Ie, rice bowls or kochi dolls.  The tools they make themselves can and are used on Al cutting edges.  Their jam chuck are quick and very effiecien.

I guess they turn on the bottom because they drive on the left?  Huh

That could not be because the English would also.  Smiley
