the band as they say is back together. The adapter never turned up so I bit the bullet and got a SK114 chuck. I have a set of SK80 C jaws and another SK100 chuck with C jaws. The SK100 starter kit is on its way to a new home. Just need to decide what jaws to go with.
I’ve sealed a load of Yew today and distracted by doing some gardening. Plan tomorrow evening is turn some oak to cylinders and glue up a couple of rattles. Next weekend is the big blank and Intrinsic colours so it’s a watch this space.
Yes RSPB have approved my design, Woodland Trust have approved reusing Ash with the bark on, I am awaiting the Wildlife trust which will be the link to the community groups who will be the installers and the link to get the Ash from the woodlands to the turners.
Emma (The Tiny Turner) is practicing making nest boxes so she can do one as a live stream, hope to get Martin and Wayne on board too that will spread the word pretty quickly.
I will PM you a web link to what will be a resource website there will also be a Facebook group so that makers and installers can link up.
I have the SK114 and also a SK100, I have the SK100 O'Donnell Dovetail Jaws with the 2 inserts which basically covers all of my dovetail needs, Axminster SK100 Colossus Gripper Jaws for the big stuff, Axminster SK80 Dovetail Jaws Type C seldom used, Axminster SK100 Button Jaws, and most recent purchase Axminster SK100 Wood Jaw Plates.
Love the SK114 chuck, it works so smoothly. I thought having 2 chucks is a luxury, but having seen Colwyn and Martin... I WANT MORE :-)
Ask any ten woodturners for an opinion on how x is achieved, you can expect at least eleven different answers.
