The purpose of this How-Tos, Tips, and Techniques subforum is to share information in the form of a tip, technique, or how-to tutorial. As an example, the content in the "Getting Started with Vacuum Turning/Chucking" thread that describes in detail how to setup a vacuum chucking system provides a good example of the intent of this subforum. In particular, Jeff Jilg's tips are educational. In addition to text articles, this subforum will also be an excellent place to post You-Tube videos. Again, the objective is to show how something is done. Movies should have a main goal. For example, how to use a bowl gouge, or how to sharpen a skewchigouge. If you have any suggestions or questions about making this subforum more useful please post them here in this thread.
