    Not specifically related to segmenting, but....

    I will be retiring soon(ish) and am looking for ideas for my forever lathe. I currently own a Delta 16/42 and a Vicmarc VL300 short bed. Both lathes are great and I use the Delta for about 95% of my turning. What I would like is a single lathe that gives me the benefit of both the swing of the...

    Am I a bad person?

    After being a member of the AAW for 20+ years, I have decided not to renew my subscription for $60.00. The only thing I get is the bi-monthly magazine and $60 seems kinda high for 6 issues of a magazine. I don't go to the symposiums, I don't really read the emails with tips, etc. I do believe...

Its kinda pricey and I am so used to using the standard Titebond PVA that I am not sure if it would be worth it for our type of application. Any thoughts?

    Does size really matter?

    Hi Lloyd, I tend to do all of my designs on 1/4" grid paper and I want to use 3D design pro to create the shapes and import to WTP. Can I scan my little pictures and blow them up in 3dp or should I blow them up first and then scan them? Thanks

    Just got my longworth chuck...

    ...and I have a problem. The bolts that are supplied with the chuck jam when I try to open or close the chuck. Has any one else had this issue and what have you done to solve it? I have the base screwed to a piece of plywood so the bolts don't fall out, but they are just loose enough to turn...

    Hey Lloyd, I don't see a place to order the longworth centering jig that you feature in your stomper vid. Are you still doing those? I know I could make one but I am a turner and my router skills are lacking. thanks....Alex
