I recently posted a platter on the projects page. I mentioned that I used a home made chatter tool on this. Karson asked that I post a picture of the chatter tool with the project. The photo shows an assortment of lathe tools, some home made some store bought. My challenge is to see how many lunberjocks can correctly identify the shop made tools. Correct answer will be posted sometime January 7. In the meantime you can see the tools with the project.

No fair. You lock us woodworkers with no turning time to be left out in the cold. (30 deg this morning. I know because I was loading the smoker with chickens, rib tips and italian sausage)

I like the use of copper pipe for ferrules and old files shaped into specialize tools. Have a bunch similar to yours. I have also used schedule 40 PVC pipe as a ferrule- not as pretty but seems to work OK.

Does the air tool have a unique function?
