Since building my DC hose switcher, I no longer need these bits - 1 y, 2 blast gates, 4 hose connectors, 6 quick clamps. Checking the Oneida website, these would retail for about $450 (crazy, I know) - but they are just collecting dust (in the wrong way) and in the way, so I'm offering them up for trade for wood - bowl blanks or other decent sized chunks of interesting wood for turning. I'm not looking for a retail-equivalent value in wood - would just like these out of the way and in someone's shop who can use them - so make a trade offer according to value to you.

What depth and width bowl blanks fit your fancy? You looking for heavy figure, exotic wood, or burl specifically? Or what about a look at, say, your last 4 or 5 bowls to get a feel for your style and wood preferences...

@SENC, Curious what your dust hose switcher looks like?

I’ve got some really nice pin striped curly silver maple boards and turning blocks, and large cylinders of cherry & curly maple for hollow forms. The weight will amount to a lot of shipping fees. Wish you were closer so the shipping costs could be saved. What size are you most interested in turning?

Here is a picture of the switcher. To give full credit, it is based on Katz-Moses' design, available online. It works well for my needs.

I'm just beginning to expand beyond spindle work, currently exploring bowls and shaoes like the oil candles I posted a few weeks ago. Would love to try a hollow form at some point, but that is probably in the future a good bit. I don't need anymore call-size blanks - but open to anything bigger. I definitely understand shipping costs will eat into what I'll get offered, and am ok with that.
