Production Tips

If you are making a number of spindle and faceplate turnings, these tips will help speed up the job and eliminate needless work.

  • Complete each operation on all pieces before moving to the next. For example, prepare all the stock, make all the turnings, plus sand and finish all the parts.
  • Mounting three or four turn-ings on extra faceplates will be faster than removing and remounting each piece.
  • When using different cutters for rough turning and final detailing, rough shape all turnings before changing tips or getting an extra tool rest assembly.
  • Drill centering holes in templates to speed up remounting and realignment.
