As a fellow newbie I appreciated reading about your experiences. I just tried TBC this weekend and had a good result, I think. I haven’t tried turning without bushings yet - mainly because I feel the bushings, even if slightly imperfect, let me know when I’m getting close to final OD. I do heed Lee’s advice and measure the bushings and pen fittings with calipers before starting, and then stop to measure the blank frequently. Some material turns so easily and fast that I’m afraid I will overturn with no bushings there to slow me down.

Looking forward to more from you as time goes on.
