Hope this helps someone.
Thanks John, enjoyed that.
You bet it does John. Thanks for your efforts.
What kind of camera are you using?
It's an old Canon ZR900 tape camera. I went out looking for a camera that had manual focus and remote mike capability. The all digital cameras that had those two capabilities were about $800 dollars. this one was $300.
I now have a Nikon D5100 still camera with digital video. I just got it and haven't had time to learn much about the video capabilities but they should be much better than the camera I now have. For one thing I can set the autofocus to follow a specific subject. I'm hoping it will work well enough to follow a gouge. That may work better than manual focus for some parts of my videos.
Like your videos John.
Keep it up
I found the use of the straight edge/lower shoulder to make the tenon especially useful. I didn't know one could do that. How does the height of the tool rest relate to the centerline of the workpiece? Thanks!
I tend to cut above center with almost all tools except scrapers. Those I prefer on center. I adjust the tool rest to be comfortable with the tool near my hip and the cutting edge about 10 or 10:30. A little higher for the skew.
