I have just been asked to turn some aytes chaim and am looking for advice as to design and best sequence for completing the project. Any replies will be gratefully received.
 
Thanks
 
Ian

Hi Ian and welcome to this site's forum.
 
Not being a fully fledged turner I for one have never heard of a Aytes Chaim so could you please tell me what it is?
 
Cheers 

Marc

Hi Ian
 
I've never heard of Ates Chaim either and google didn't return any meaningful results either.  Have you spelt it right? 
 
Cheers Dave

I also searched the web with no luck.
 
The only thing that did come up was Chaim, a common Jewish name and Yates Chain is a pub chain company.

He is obviously not very interested.  If he was then he would have been back to check for replies and have responded by now.  Perhaps anothe one hit wonder?
I'd love you to prove me wrong Ian.

Aytes chaim are the wooden poles,discs and handles which support the torah parchment from which a reading is made each sabbath in synagogue and is referred to as a scroll.
 
My reply may seem slow but I am of a generation which does not remain online all day!

Hi Ian
 
That's very interesting, have you pictures of this and then maybe we can offer more help, as you can see, we are not knowledgeable of this term.

I wonderd if the Israel was the country and not the surname!, I searched the dictionary and could not find any word spelt that way,  now I can see why I was unable to find the meaning of the words, a photograph would be interesting,
 
 More details please Ian

hi Ian
    after looking at the link that i have put in the previas post i would think that the easyest way to progress this would be to turn the spindle part first as in a table lamp. then turn the base as this will give you the chance to drill and clean up the hole to take the spindle part of it.

Well done Dennis
 


 
Its surprising just changing a few letters around can make. I get over 9,400 pages on the subject!
 
Atzei Chaim from Google search.
 
 
Nice one mate.

Hi Ian
 
Looking at the pictures it seems much as dennis Suggests:
 
Turn two ends using faceplate turning as though you were doing a bowl.  i would suggest fastening the blank to a wooden facplate using double sided carpet tape.
 
The spindles must come apart I guess so it can be inserted thbrough the Torah.  In which case i would turn it in three sections - two ends and a middle.  i would insert seom threaded rod in the ends of the centre spindle and fix a nut in the ends of the hadle, then it will all screw together.  alternatively, you could thread the ends or the spindle by hand if you used a suitable timber, or use a boxwood insert for this part.
 
Hope that helps.
 
It would be good to see the finsihed items
 
Cheers Dave
