I like the centering jig.
This makes it look easy and less painstaking.
Your video work is really progressing in leaps and bounds.
Super job ; )

Nice method Larry. It really simplifies the process and ensures a good result. I would do a video, but I’m afraid if anyone saw how I actually worked I would thrown off LJ. Just for clarity I’m only talking about how I work and not how I dress in the shop.LOL

Nice video Larry, pure magic. You’re a surprise sometimes.

Having a base that covers the less than pretty lazy susan bearing makes the product sing.
Nice going, Larry.
I think I should get a couple of cases of that XXXX Gold to keep my thinking up to your level!

Jolly good show Larry, but now you’ll have to wait until next year to see if you get nominated by the academy or not :-)
Good job simply and clearly put.

Larry, what about the part where that little screw falls askew into the hole and you have to shake the whole thing to get it out….... or you can’t get it out and have to take the whole thing apart and start over…. and your swearing. Did you have to edit about 15 minutes of cursing out of this video?
