You might say, what’s the big deal about turning a bowl in about 3 hours time, anyone can do that! Well in this project we will instruct you on how to turn a bowl while it’s green, dry it, finish it, all in just a few hours. John Wolf (from the Turning Tuesday’s woodworkers) shows us how it’s done starting out with a piece of “green” curly maple saved from the scrap pile.
Owned one of these for years.
I purchased one of these years ago and it has held up extremely well. It holds anything you can fit the jaws around. I am upgrading from a 10" midi lathe to a 16" lathe and am getting the bigger insert for it. I'm sure it will last for years to come. Well made product from performance to fit and finish.
I just works
I bought the Oneway Talon to go with a ten inch midi-lathe that my projects quickly outgrew so I moved on to a sixteen inch lathe. But I have not outgrown the Oneway Talon. This chuck has taken anything and everything I have thrown at it and I know I have overloaded it more than once. It operates very smoothly, is very precise, grips everything well, and in general is an absolute pleasure to use. I purchased a larger and heavier but less expensive chuck from another vendor to handle my bigger projects but I got what I paid for. The larger and less expensive chuck turned out to be less capable than the smaller and lighter Oneway Talon and will almost certainly end up being replaced with a Oneway Stronghold chuck in the near future.
