Jim in the shop

This video is of Jim working around the shop. Jim takes rough logs and turns them into various bowls from start to finish. A must watch.

      To be totally honest I don’t know. The fan has a 50cfm tho and it’s probably about 5” across.

      Hope this helps

    Jim just bought a new laguna 1836 2hp. lathe. Wondering what type or size of 4 jaw chuck to buy? Thinking of superNOVA G2 for large bowls? 12 – 15″ dia… Any help would greatly be appreciated.

    Thx. Norm.

      Hi Bill

      You will need to find a specialty store that sells large nut and bolts like Fastenall here in Canada. I get my hot melt glue from Canadian Tire here in Canada as well.

      Safe turning
      Jim
