Topic tags/keywords: question

I propose a fun game. I will start this game now. I am posting some photographs and you (yes you) have 48 hours to guess what it is. The rules are simple. This is really #2 for this game.

1. It must be made out of wood.

2. Or, it must be used in woodworking such as a non-wood jig.

3. If you wish to post your own “WHAT IS IT” take the next number 3, 4, 5, etc.

4. You mugs post your guesses below. This is the 2nd time for me. Some of you must have something like #3, #4, or #5. I’m running out of ideas … so get to work

OK, HERE WE GO …. WHAT IS IT ?

OK you knuckle heads, fredf was close, and PeterO was right on, but Douglas Bordner must have just visited his proctologist because he thought it was for bowels. OUCH !

When I turn a bowl 90% of the time I screw a face plate to a piece of scrap. I then glue the bowl blank to the scrap with a piece of shopping bag paper in between. After the bowl is turned and completely finished I use a 6” wide putty knife to separate the two. Then I mount it on this contraption and turn the foot.

This is the face plate plus scrap attached.

Jig and face plate.

This is the jig with the bowl mounted on the lathe.

Here is the back of the jig. The jig measures 13 7/8” ... that’s 1/8” less than the lathe capacity.

um…how about a circle cutting jig, or something for assembly as it looks like it is on an assembly table.

It’s probably NOT made of Chinese plywood.

Well it’s not Chinese plywood cuz the veneer is too thick. I think it’s a giant Spirograph toy thingy.

Yeah, it’s a big lathe chuck – the ring holds the lip of a large bowl or platter against the disk so you can turn the base and underside of the workpiece.

I agree with SPalm it’s a segmented bowl press.

Too painful to be a toilet seat, must be a press jig of some sort.
