@Katdaddy, The lathe is a lot of fun, but I must admit that faster and sharper is better for me.

@David Kirtley, Thanks for the tip on the HUT wax. Never heard of it, but it sounds really good. I see Amazon has a few versions, too. The round stock is an affirmative. These next ones I make need to be round and for the larger bolt size (for the triangle, the diamond and the radiused square ones). I had already thought about the diamond stone sharpening (which I have four DMT’s), but I believe I’ll be tossing the round ones after they’ve been used up all the way around.

It’s my understanding that the radiused square ones are really handy for turning inside larger bowls (which I have not attempted yet).

-- If you're going to stir the pot, think BIG spoon or SMALL boat paddle. David Grimes, Georgia
