    Looked back and read up on the discussion on chucks. Are all 4 jaw wood chucks self centering? Wondering because metal 4 jaw chucks often aren't so you can secure odd shaped pieces. I thought that would be handy for wood too.

    Mine is self centring, but it just isn’t that big of a deal with wood as you can secure odd shapes easily enough anyway.

    I did spend some time looking at wood chucks and didn't find any that weren't self centering. Obviously, it wasn't an exhaustive search. You asked earler, how people finish the end after parting. I'll post pictures of how I am doing it.

    Since I'm working with aluminum right now, I'm looking at anodizing. I'll share my results, but since most the people here won't really find it useful, I'll avoid posting too much detail. If there is interest, I'll start a thread for metal finishing... :) even if I'm there all by myself.

    As far as I know all standard 4 jaw wood chucks are self centering. However there are speciality chucks for eccentric turning. I've seen a few pictures of those that where 4 jaw.

    And if you start another thread on the metal turning please try to remember to tag me so I see it.

    My 4 jaw tightens each jaw individually.

    What chuck do you have. I've only seen pictures of one or two like that.

    Made brush #5 today. Experimenting with anodizing. Had a red dye but the test piece came out very pink so I aborted on the dye. Here you can see it with my first for comparison. The anodizing has a mat white quality. It won't tarnish like the polished aluminum, but it won't shine like it either. Going to play with some color and some new shapes...

    My first two toned resin pour. Blue metallic on the bottom and then mixed in some bronze colouring. A slow pour to have it blend just a bit:

    I’m happy with it, especially for a first go.

    2 down. Needs some tung oil and end fitted for head which will be cleaned up and painted black. This is the style my Grandfather used to make way back when I was a boy. He turned on his lathe till he was about 85. Died at 104 . Thicker on top will never crack with such a heavy head . Post finished pics when finished.
