This is a stand for woodturners to be able to remove their project, a vase, bowl, or any other turning from the lathe and not have to remove the chuck or faceplate to embellish it in some way. Like sanding, carving or drilling. I have seen similar stands done with gas pipe. This is my version.
From left to right, the first is a 1” x8TPI x 1 1/2” long rod with a flat washer and a 1/2” rod welded to it. Second is a 2” length of 1” round steel with a 1/2” hole drilled near one end and a 1/2” threaded rod welded to the other end. The third is a piece of 2 1/2” x 12” flat steel with a 1 1/2” round steel having a 1” hole drilled length wise and welded to the flat bar. And the last is a short piece of 1” round drilled and tapped for 1/2” thread and a short length of 3/8” steel welded to it to act as a handle.
This is the finished stand clamped to my workbench with a chuck installed. For those who like to carve or embellish their work this is a handy item.
