Those are awesome. Still never touched a lathe yet. A friend of mine has a lathe and is going to start teaching me. Can’t wait!

It’s just another machine Angie, once you get to play around a bit and learn/follow some basic safety rules you’ll be fine and you’ll be productive. Its patience and persistence.

No Joel not yet, I started one but it stripped the little stopper mandrel. I have to figure out a better way to hold them.

Happy New Year!
