Preparations done for leveling and sanding
The blank is covered with masking tape and a bearing is placed on a masking tape bushing to avoid any harm to the blank. At the rear end of the blank I have placed a reinforcement wrap of masking tape. Tools from left to right: two sharp chisels, head of drilling machine with prepared chuck to fit the butt end of the blank. Caliper for measurings during the turning process and on the right the stand for the bearing and the necessary C-clamp behind it. In the background the end of the vacuum cleaner hose.
