When I am turning a spindle (36") on my Ridgid lathe, as I get to the
middle of the length of the spindle, it begins to 'shudder' and seems to
bow while spinning. I avoid pressing hard into the spindle when I
expect this to happen, it solves to problem slightly but I end up only
being able to remove little material at a time.
Is there a way to rememdy this (without getting a spindle support
thanks in advance.
It's called "whip". You can lightly curl a couple of fingers around the
spindle to support it while turning.
You may get some other ideas if you ask the question in
