New Hollowing System

I recently got a hollowing system from Lyle Jamieson and have been learning to use it. Most of my hollow forms in the past tended to be smaller as I tended to rely on hand held tools. Some experienced woodturners are quite comfortable with handle held elbow brace systems with 3/4" bars but not me! Once you get past 1/2" bars, and maybe even then, a system like this Jamieson rig with a laser takes far less skill and worry out of the process. It is just easier and makes turning more fun. You can see a recent video on it here:
