If you like, you can put the video number (after the "v=" in the url) between tags like this to show a thumbnail of the video.

Comes out like this:

You can also get a bigger one to play the video within the post with this:

Thanks Jeff!

One thing I didn't get into the video, that I think is also an essential to turning between centers, is the short tool rest. I got mine from IAP member Rick Herrell and have been very pleased with it!

It's almost like CHEATING! :biggrin:

That's why I felt a need to show that I CAN use a skew when I have too! :biggrin:

Thanks for all the nice comments. This video stuff is new to me ... lots of room for improvement. :redface:

Great video. The only thing was the dust collector kinda drowned out some of what you were saying. Not sure how to fix that, but it would be a good thing to fix.

I think adding the narration afterwards is the way to go. The problem is, I haven't really got it down yet. :frown: For one thing I need a better microphone (My computer told me so ... :confused: :eek:) :)

Couple of hints, Lenny--ignore if you wish!!

First adding the sound after the fact gets easier if you buy a cheap digital "tape recorder" (1" x 4"--$30). Record your sound a short clip at a time to keep in sync with the video--but then you can cancel as much of the dust collector as you wish.

Second, I would move your tool rest closer when you use the skew. You have GREAT tool control, I was never worried---but the guy who watches and tries to imitate---may not be so skilled---and the hole between the tool rest and the blank will allow one heck of a catch.

Nice job with the woodchuck!!!!

Oh, your right Ed! I never thought about that part of it! :eek:

One thing about the Woodchuck is you do have to lower the tool rest considerably below and away from the work to allow it to set properly on the rest. I USUALLY do take the time to raise it to a proper level and closer distance.
My mind set was on getting it done in the shortest possible clip. Now that I know how easy it is to edit out parts, that shouldn't have be an issue.

Thanks!

Lenny Nice video, and I also have to say thanks for the mention, I hope a lot of Georgia folks watch this, cause I'm taking a bunch of Woodchucks to Turning Southern Style this coming Week end in Helen Georgia, Y'all stop by ya hear..
Nice work with the skew also, I'm still trying to grasp that tool as well as I would like.

John and Ken,
When I worked for myself, which was most of my life, :biggrin:
I would often be asked "who would you recommend for _____!"
I never took that lightly! Still don't! :biggrin:
When you can lead someone to a product that's going to make their life easier, their results better, and you know they will get treated well, .... whether it's Ed and Dawn's blanks or John's Eliminator bushings or Ken's Woodchuck, ... Well ...it's an easy call! :)

Well, be sure to adjust your tool rest as close as possible to the work (without touching) and at a height that allows the point of contact of the tool to be just above centerline (at cl or slightly below for a woodchuck) =0)
