    Deluxe Cue Smith lathe mod's

    would it be possible to add a third limit switch to kill the lathe and router but not the travel and then when the travel hits the last switch it kicks it in reverse until the tailstock switch is met? I enclosed mine as well to keep dust and noise down.

    dying blanks

    Hello. Has anyone ever tried dying blanks while stabilizing them at the same time? I tried dying some maple burl using blue mixed in with my stabilizing resin but it doesn't look like its going to turn out right. I have a very good vacuum setup and used more powder dye than was recommended...

    DIY veneers

    Hello. I was wondering if anybody dyes their own veneers? I recently purchased a vacuum chamber setup and tried dying maple and poplar veneers but the dye did not penetrate completely. I left them in for over an hour. I am using Transtint dye btw. Any help would be appreciated.
