It is a dowel and I think the motors would hold the RPMs if they weren't slipping on the dowel.

So the dowel is still slipping?

Very. The next step is to add some sort of studs to that collar to bite into the end. A real lathe would have a 3 or 4 jaw chuck that clamps on the outside of the workpiece.

Maybe add some black electrical friction tape to the collar(s). It has a very light adhesive but should stick well enough to the collar(s) and provide better friction to the dowel. Just a thought.

The collar is just an aluminum handle I had and put on to hopefully add enough friction to keep in spinning.
Sorry, I just need to go back a second...when you say "squirrel cage", what you mean is...? Pics?

It's like the type of fan found on a furnace or an evap cooler. I don't know for sure why they call them "squirrel cage". I've always thought their shape resembles a snail shell. Sorry I'm heading off to work, so no time to find a photo for you...

Oh, so disappointed. I thought you kept squirrels, and was very excited. Please, carry on.

Will you be using the whole length of the dowel? Conceivably, could you make a groove on either end to be sawed off later so that the lathe can "bite"?

I may have to smoke up a bowl of GL Pease Union Station tonight with a nice stout outside if the weather holds in the 40's or so.

Harbor freight and places have cheapish lathes... I know you get what you pay for but if all you're turning is a mouthpiece it should be fine. May be cheaper in the long run unless you have an abundance of parts around.

I will probably lose the better part of an inch on either end. I'm working on something of the sort.

Yeah, I have a HF just a few miles from the house. I'd like a real lathe but don't have the money that it takes. I haven't spent anything yet on this one. I'm gonna try to keep it that way.
