Chain Keeper

The chain on my girlfriend's bike keeps falling off the inside of the chainring due to low quality shifters. The front derailleur is adjusted correctly, so I thought a positive mechanical guide for the chain would help. We spent some time in the shop and came up with this:

At the 8-o-clock position, the clamp is relieved to clear the down tube and weld. There is very little space between it and the derailleur clamp.

It is made of hickory--time will tell how it holds up.

I also started turning a bowl on the pole lathe-

If you live in NW Washington and know someone who would be interested in owning this lathe, let me know! I need to find a new home for it.
