See, I was hoping for something like this:

Understand the cash thing! Best of luck on that project. Do you have anything available that is bigger that you could gear-down?

I have two 120VAC motors. One is a tool motor with mounting base and all. 3250 RPMs? It's what I would use if I was making something serious. I would still have to come up with a head stock with chuck and a tail stock.

would a rubber lined piston ring compressor work? like if you make a wooden circle, quartered it then cut a small piece out of each corner? maybe a larger chunk to fit around the shaft of the motor or am I thinking crazy?

Sounds crazy to me. Current plan is 4 (because the placement is easier than 3) pins in that aluminum collar and maybe a second aluminum collar if I can find one. It was originally an airbrake knob on an older vehicle. Of course everything now is yellow plastic.

I'm also giving thought to pulling the magnets and armature off of the tailpiece motor shaft instead of trying to drive both ends.

Depends if you mean $$$ from Klingspor or normal stuff. I do have some light and medium weight carving chisels. I think the light ones are gonna burn up on a lathe. I gotta dig the others out.

I just bought my first pipe. Just a beginner pipe. So far I like it. I don't know if this beats a cigar yet. Lol

Give it some time, pipe smoking takes practice.

I decided to go out and pick up another pipe today. This is what I came home with;

I'm going to break it in tomorrow with some Holiday Spirit.
