The best sealing stopper on the market; SS-9000 with 4 o-rings and not much taper allowing 2 o-rings to make contact with the inside of the bottle. See picture comparing tapered stopper with the 9000 stopper in the bottle. The 9000 fit a much larger selection of bottles: wine, whiskey, Balsamic vinegar, etc. These stoppers stand up so your artwork can be on display when it is not being used in a bottle. If it doesn’t stand, it will end up in the utensil drawer!
Two stub drill bits: the 5/16″ works with native wood. The 11/32″ will make threading in acrylic, resin and tight-grain exotic wood easier. The stub bits don’t wander when they hit hard grain like the longer bits will. The spiral tip tap cuts wood easier than the average wood tap.
The draw bar is a safety feature: it only works with the #2MT-A and #2MT-B Morse taper mandrels. Thread it in the back of the mandrel, insert it through the headstock spindle and tighten the fender washer up against the center of the hand wheel. (see pictures)
Lathes Specifications: here is a list of lathe spindle sizes and Morse taper if you are not sure.
