Default video: drilling on the lathe (another one)

I know this has been done, (and probably done better), but I was bored today and decided to try making a video.

Drilling an Amboyna burl blank on my Jet mini with a PSI collet chuck.

Good Job, Lenny! That's exactly how I do it, except I don't use the tape. I just keep a Sharpie fine point by the lathe and put a small mark on the bit. I make so many pens with the same length tube that the mark on the bit is just about permanent now.

Excellent video (and I like that high dollar dust collector collar) :) Wish my Jet were that clean!

LOL ... yeah, it's pretty fancy.
I have actually started to think about doing something different ... but whatever I've tried so far .... well, it's still there! The PSI one looks promising but I'm not sure it would be any better.

I have the PSI one, yours looks better. The PSI "flap" front seemed like a good idea, but it gets so much acrylic and CA on it that it is impossible to see through.

Clean it with the same polish you use for acrylic pens, then put a layer of Saran wrap on the underside. Replace when it gets grungy...

Dirt Bikers do this to their face shields and have multiple layers of wrap. During a race when it gets dirty, they rip off a layer.
