THIS BOWL HAS BEEN TURNED USING ONLY GROUND ENGINEERING FILES. ITS WAS SCREWED TO FACE PLATE ,THEN THE BACK TURNED.THE DOG TEETH YOU SEE ON BOWL WAS THEN FIXED TO LATHE. AND THE BACKSIDE OF BOWL TAPPED ONTO TEETH TO HOLD ON PLACE.THE TAIL STOCK WAS CENTERED WITH A PIECE OF PLASTIC 1/2 INCH X 1/2 INCH DIAMETER WITH A 1/8 DRILL THROUGH CENTER.OF PLASTIC.SO THE CENTRE OF TAIL STOCK HELD IN PLACE. .AS YOU CAN SEE ?DO YOU REALLY NEED TO PAY OUT FOR EXPENSIVE TURNING TOOLS?? I ADMIT YOU DO NEED A GOOD SET AS STANDBY. BUT WITH PAITENCE AND TIME YOU TOO CAN ACHEIVE THE POSSIBLE.!! ALL THESE I DO FROM GROUND FILES ARE TRIED AND TESTED.!!IF YOU USE A FILE WORK WITH THE FILE,ALWAYS HOLD FILE 1 INCH FROM CUTTING EDGE .PLUS THE GOOD THING WITH FILES ARE THAT YOU CAN GET THEM FOR A FEW PENNIES. FORGET THE RUST ITS THE END YOU GRIND THAT COUNTS. AND YOU CAN ALWAYS GRIND ANY PROFILE YOU WANT.!! UNIQUE FILE MAGIC. EASY WHEN YOU KNOW HOW??
