I finally am able to have time to use my new lathe. I am attempting to make a few pendants for Christmas and having issues. I have been able to turn two with success. I keep loosing the rest. I have tried hot glue, no success. Carpet tape, get them rounded and go to do the face and bye bye. I sneak up on them and gone.
I am using mahogany and capacha. Capacha is in the ipe family and actually turns pretty easy.
Any suggestions on the double stick tape would be great since that has worked for two. It may just be the brand I am using from the big box.
I have attached a photo of the wast block and two of the pedants that worked. These are just seeing how to pull it off.
Thanks in advance.
Sorry about the rotated picture.
