I recently bought a lathe. I am learning as I go.
I have a round stock of aluminum about 1.5 inches thing. I shape and cut down for the shape I need with no problems. Now I have shaped maybe 3 inches of a 12 inch round piece. What is the proper way for butting off the 3 inch cut piece very neat/cleanly without wasting to much of the round piece of aluminum.
Hope that sounds right. Many thanks!
