Threaded, reusable, aluminum glue hub with machined groove for glue or resin. Use with or without hardwood waste block - or create your own waste block.
SIMPLE: Turn both inside, outside and bottom without removing and reversing project
EXTRA SPACE: creates more room for shaping bottom or foot as it is smaller than a 4-jaw chuck and moves project away from the headstock
SAVES WOOD: No need to lose wood on a tenon. Consume the waste block when parting your project off
LONG LIFE: Add more fine-grained hardwood to extend waste block
REUSABLE: Aluminum won’t crack or break over time
REMOVEABLE: Remove project from lathe multiple times without losing center alignment.
CONVENIENT: No screws or jaws. Thread hub onto lathe, glue your wood project directly to the waste block, use your tailstock to hold, and start turning once the glue dries.
THREADED: Threads directly onto your lathe spindle, or can be reversed and held in tail stock.
HOLDS SECURELY: Waste block features ½” deep milled pocket that the glue hub is glued into resulting in a more secure hold than a butt joint. No more coming loose from chuck jaws.
LIGHTWEIGHT: Weighs 16 oz (with waste block) vs 4-jaw chucks that weigh 4+ lbs
WORKS WITH RESIN: Without the waste block this can be glued or molded directly into a resin project.
Can be glued directly into wood or resin project by drilling a 50MM diameter by 0.5" deep hole using a forstner bit. We recommend using clear Gorilla Glue and allowing 24 hour cure time prior to beginning to turn. Waste Block Surface preparation: Be sure surfaces are clean and free of dirt, wax, oil or other substances and follow instructions on your glue bottle. Do not use newspaper. We always recommend using tailstock support as much as possible when turning. This can be done with a live tailstock chuck and a center point.
Glue Hub Details:
CNC machined from 6061 aluminum
1.90" outside diameter
3.5" Overall Length
Choose from either 1" - 8 TPI threads or 1.25" - 8 TPI
Optional Hardwood Waste Block:
Arrives pre-glued to hub using clear Gorilla glue.
Routered from kiln dried hard maple.
2.5" diameter x 1.5" long
Milled pocket is 0.50" deep, so your glue hub sits inside the waste block 0.50".
Once your original waste block becomes 1" long, we suggest that you add additional fine-grained hardwood, such as hard maple, to the waste block. This will allow you to separate your project without consuming the original waste block.
Once you've completed your resin project & parted it off from the Glue Hub, turn down any excess resin and sand down to reveal the aluminum surface. The best tool for parting off is a negative rake carbide parting tool.
