Moke, SWAT is an organization comprising wood turning clubs in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas, based in Waco where they hold an annual turning symposium. I belong to the Central Oklahoma Woodturners Association,, based in Oklahoma City, Ok. Yeah, I know, you’re just yankin my chain. Thought I’d put the webiste here for anyone who’s interested anyway. LOL

I’d also like to put in a pitch for AAW (American Association of Woodturners). They offer a tremendous amount of resources through their website and have a first-class journal that comes out six times a year.

There are over 350 AAW chapters (see:

In many cases, local clubs (like the one I belong to) require AAW membership.

Congrats Mike. I have had some thoughts about doing this also. Looking forward to seeing you progress in your journey. You are so good at telling it like it is, it should be a great adventure.

Mole, I just checked for co-planar and UP/down is perfect and side-to-side is off by ~1/4mm when loose but I can shift and snug to the backside, like yours, and I get a perfect fit. Good to know this. Thanks.

Sounds like you have no problems, that is just like mine. Just get into the habit of pushing it back away from the ways when you tighten the tailstock…..
