Rick,
Thanks for the terrific job on the tool rests you made for my lathe. They are a work of art, it seems almost a shame to use them, but I will :-) Turn around time was extremely fast and I really appreciate that.

Thanks again,
Larry

I have a question about your flat top tool rests. Are they a specific length, or do we select a length? I didn't see that info on that section.

Thanks,

Dennis

They're all custom made Dennis so order any length you want.

Hi Rick, I saw your tools for the first time today and have to have one of the Offset Lathe Sanding Jigs. I sent you a nice long PM and would like to get this in the works and heading my way soon. This stuff looks like some real quality work and you have a great reputation floating around on here and FaceBook. I hope to be able to add some nice comments to that reputation real soon.

One thing I just thought of and didn't include in my PM is, my lathe has an outboard turning spot that was originally used to make bowls. It has a threaded end and I still have the tool rest and stuff that the original owner put on it. I haven't gotten good enough yet to have had to need it all. I wonder if there is some way to adapt your sanding jig to be mounted on this side of the lathe and left there to be used when needed. I will try and take a pic of what I have and hopefully we can discuss it later.

Hello Rick - I would like to order one of your DEDICATED DI holders. I have a Jet 1642 and the measurement from the top of the banjo to the center line on the head stock is just under 6 inches.

I will be using Paypal so please let me know the total charges.

Thanks - Dave

Just wanted to let everyone who visits here know that Rick and I have exchanged several emails in the last few days and he is building me a custom post that will fit in the banjo on the outboard turning side of my lathe. He already has sent me his sanding jig and it took a couple times for me to get him the correct measurements for the post. I first just sent him what I thought were the correct measurements but he made a nice little drawing and I had to modify my thinking to fit his design. We got it all right this morning.

I intend to put this setup on the outboard side of my lathe and leave it there until I get good enough to start making some big bowls when I might need that side for that. I am really tired of messing up nice blanks, I screwed up two Amboyna blanks last week -- good thing they were short. After I get this all set up it should save me a bunch of time because changing setups is one thing that eats up a lot of my turning time. I intend to use it to square blanks before turning and I see no reason why I couldn't slide the blank back on it after turning to clean it up and get rid of the excess CA.

Hopefully I will be able to post a couple pics when its all working. Most importantly I want to thank Rick for taking the time to work with me on this, I'm anxious to get it running!
