Let us all know how the hone technique works. Like I said, my lathe is at
someone else's house, so I've got some time to come up with a plan to make
these things. I'm not in an enormous hurry at the moment.
no, i 'm just turning the outside surface down a bit so that it's
concentric to the spindle. most of the arbors i've bought were
seemingly drilled off center (at least they looked that way
when spinning). so i usually true that up before milling wrench
flats and drilling the set screw holes on the sides. i figure
if it's concentric to the spindle, then i should be able to get
it pretty close in the four jaw if i'm patient about centering it.
might be compounding errors tho...
can't be much worse than the claimed .001" accuracy of the whole lathe
