David, 10-4 on the Chuck At $40 it does not break the bank, even though it may not go with a larger lathe. I really don’t see me and a bigger one anytime soon. At least two to three years out.

Table legs, chair spindles, and hand plane knobs is more than enough to keep me busy for awhile. All of those are in that ~2in range that you mention. Sounds like I should be able to pull it off if I am careful about wood choice.

QUESTION FOR ALL: Still looking for an economical sharpening system. I do all of my hand plane blades by hand via “Scary Sharp” method. Do I really need a powered sharpening system for the turning tools? Or just a bit more sweat equity?
