Default First time using a chuck on the lathe.

First time making something using my 4 jaw chuck. I've only turned pens up until this point.

So I made a pen holder haha.

Definitely one of the lathe essentials.
Nice pen you have in the holder too, it's one of my favorite kits.

Oh wow no kidding. How are you managing to get any shop time in with this heat? I haven't made anything for about a month.

Lathe thought process:

Weee! I have a lathe! Let's make stuff!
Hmmmm... I can't hold onto this part right....
Weeee! I have a chuck! Let's make stuff!
Hmmmm... It'd work better if....
Weeee! I have a new set of Jaws! Let's make stuff!
Hmmm... Now I need a jam chuck...
Weeee! Let's make stuff!
Hmmmm.... Now how do I finish this bowl bottom again?
Weeee!..... etc etc etc

Now that you have a chuck, random useless lumps of wood suddenly become potential glue blocks, jam chucks, and other fixtures. :)

I worked outside in Havasu (which is on average about 5-10 degrees hotter than Phoenix) for 13 years. So the heat doesn't really bother me honestly.

Also my wife just bought me a mobile AC unit two weeks ago, that I just have blow at my back when in the garage.

I see. I figured a portable AC would never cool off my garage but I was looking at it the wrong way. All I need is for it to keep me cool, not the garage. Thanks for the insight.
