MrUnix – the ordering site he suggests at the bottom is a dead site.

That shouldn’t stop you :) A little further investigation came up with this:

It looks like a well made tool and it only costs $60.

I’m not a turner and don’t know crap about it. I watched the video where it look like he was holding the gauge in one hand and the turning tool in the other.

My question…..is it safe to turn with only one hand on the cutting tool.

Absolutely … I do it all of the time with a gouge or parting tool or calipers. Works best if you have really sharp tools.

To clarify on what Gerry said, you wouldn’t want to turn a whole spindle or bowl one handed but all this is doing is setting the peaks and valleys for you. After that you put it away and round out the sides to your desired shape with two hands. Being able to do this is crucial when you need to make more than one of something and you need them to be the same. I have about 10 or more pairs of calipers that I set for different parts of something I’m making more than one of (like tool handles) and they give me the size I need then if I don’t botch up the curves I have identical sized items. This tool in the thread would be as simple as a paper with numbers written on it to correspond to each level you need. Super quick and easy. I never knew it existed.
