I thought of using a vise, and wasn’t real thrilled about using the Rockler one for it’s pressing capabilities, looked like you be spinning for a while while pressing it.

Chip, no, no, and no. I knew in the back of my head there was more stuff that would be needed but didn’t know what. And I do like those presses you showed and those are more like the types I’ve seen.

What about turning tools, like this Sorby set Rockler has on sale for $39? I’m thinking that 6 piece Sorby set Rockler had on sale that I picked up might be too big.

Sure am glad I asked, that Rockler press looks like it’s off the docket. Almost bought it yesterday too, but I thought I’d ask, sure glad of that.
