My question is,,,,Why turn bowls??


The short answer is that they can be attractive and/or useful.

The long answer is that it's how the mainstream turning is geared.
First you get a small lathe to turn pens, until all your friends and family start saying "I have a pen thank you".
Then it's time to move up to a mid-sized lathe and work on boxes or potpourri containers, and various handle kits, basically the entire PSI catalog.
Then your supposed to move up to a full sized lathe and turn bowls.
Anything else is considered a 'specialty" and not really looked upon as proper turning. Oh, you turn that, that's nice  Roll Eyes

Apparently you didn't get the memo that was sent out, now get with the program.
I want to see you get out there and pump out a few bowls or we'll, we'll do something, you just wait.

Turning spheres, you rebel.

For those who are satire impaired, I was partially joking

There may be a place for you on the enforcement squad  Undecided

You sell non essentials so with everyone staying home, you should not have many visitors to douse with Lysol.

On the plus side, i might finally get to all of my own framing pieces that been in here for years.

I have a  6' long red snake skin that is in the process of being framed and might finally get finished this week.  My own project for the store.

People really do buy this stuff! Smiley

No, it has a Malaysa stamp on it and I have not been able to find anything like it on any google search. I have had it for close to 20 years rolled up and in a box of other weird things.

I have had 3 customers come in today and the last one spent almost $1,800 on framing...stuff. Nothing expensive, just stuff. Smiley

Sounds like it is paying you to stay open. By bro is POed cuz even the golf courses In Colo. Springs is shut down. It is open here.  I went to my local liquor store yesterday to get some corona or stock market sedative.  The owner was grinning fro ear to ear, said business was fantastic

I recently got my father’s General model 160 lathe.  The other night, the spindle cracked at the last thread and near about threw my chuck off.  Does anyone know where I can find a spindle for this old unit?  Thumbs Up

I was going to suggest you might have to buy a used machine and cannibalize it for parts.

If you were sandpaper, what grit would you be and why?

I would be an odd grit like 100 or 150. I never really use those.
