Hey David, I think using the lathe would have been safer, I was thinking of using MDF (medium density fiberboard) and cutting out caps or inserts with a hole saw, I could have then used a threaded rod and either “capped” each end of the weight shell or “inserted” the mdf, with a center hole in the rod for the tailstock and a 3 jaw or 4 jaw chuck this would have worked great in the lathe. Several other ways I had thought of also, kind of how I operate to get ideas, once I get it in my head I have to disprove, prove, or improve the method, I am kind of goofy that way. William
