A while back I got a killer deal on a few tubs of goodies. I ended up with several high end gauges, a 3/4 horse variable speed, reversible DC motor and controller, 123 blocks, a slew of HSS cutters for a machinist’s lathe and on and on, for around sixty bucks.
Some of the things I’ll sell at good prices and put the money toward things I want or need. However, as time goes on, I find some of the things might be handy for wood turning. For example, I have this box of Lyndex collets I could use to chuck up fine spindles or something, but I’m not certain which collet holder I need to use them on my wood lathes [with a draw bar].
Obviously, I’d need a Morse taper collect to mount these in my Rockwell Delta or mini Jet, but that’s as far as I’ve gotten so far. Any suggestions?
Next is the matter of the fifty or so knives for a machinist lathe. It I had the right holder, these could be used for scrapers or something else in my wood lathe knife arsenal. Any ideas there?
