The mill is rough turned to 2 3/8 inch diameter. I drilled the hole for the body first, then parted the top and drilled the top for the shaft. When I put the top tenon into the bottom hole there is no play, but the tenon top is not concentric with the bottom hole. Is it possible to fix this.
Is it possible to fix this?
- Put the top into the base
- chuck it firmly into the lathe
- turn the top so it's now concentric
I'm not sure that this is be recommended, however. I believe it's extremely likely that the two pieces would separate while spinning on the lathe and that would be a Bad Thing™, potentially causing injury and/or damage.
It should be, however, possible.
