I used this product to make a bowl and found the instructions easy to understand and the tools did their job very well. I glued together four pieces of 3/4" plywood for my blank and found that the router bits did their job easley and well. All that was required was some sanding and some finish. Well worth the price if you intend to make several bowls (Christmas?)

Getting the end grain sanded inside a bowl is difficult - unless you use a sanding holder in a electric drill. I use an old corded drill, chuck up the holder, and then use the appropriate sanding disk to the job. Velcro holds the cloth backed abrasive in place. I've used this for about a year. Flexing it too much has caused the rubber to separate so I'm getting another one and being a little less aggressive. :-) I use it with the lathe stationary and sometimes with the lathe turning very slowly - about 50 rpm either forward or in reverse.

I really like the idea and it will work well only if you get the 1 1/4" BOWL BIT the 1 1/8" bit will not work with the collet ext. because it is not as wide as the ext. (I wish I new that I burned the bearing on the bit doing 1 bowl!!!
MLCS NOTE: This is why we now offer the Bowl Template Kit with the Collet Extension and 1-1/4" Bit in one package. The 1-1/8" Dish Cutter Bit was never intended for, nor marketed for, this application.
