  1. At the beginning of the video I thought you were going to try "driving" your lathe again. Then I was relieved to see your hands move. 🙂

  2. I love your videos. Extremely informational. Do you have the same grind and angle on both your bowl and spindle gouges?

  3. 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍 good clear explanation Mike 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

  4. Great video Mike thats how I do mine Doug Thompson has a vid on his website showing the same way, good work mate

  5. Thanks Mike very informative video for them starting and them of us that forgot,all the best

  6. Mike is that the Axminster bench grinder your using? It’s very quiet and smooth running.

  7. Thank you, Mike, for a great refresher. May I just remind you that Bastille Day in France is on Saturday and I look forward to seeing you in the Legionnaire's full dress uniform. Our numbers are getting fewer by the year.
    Vive la France!!!

  8. I was told that you do not need to cool HSS as it might make them brittle. What is the correct procedure re cooling?
    Is there a definite ruling?

  9. I bought a second hand tormek which makes setting and keeping angles very easy. It is not the cheapest system, but worth it in my opinion. I do like your setup and merhods, would have been my backup plan 😁.
