lathe improvements

Lars has recently made a number of improvements to the ice lathe he made last year. He added legs, a tool rest, and some kind of chucks to hold the workpiece in place. He writes, "the chucks work great! I had to keep tightening them as the piece was turning, since it's above freezing right now. . . . I wore a hockey helmet in case of disintegration."
