Hi to all, I’ve not posted for quite a while due to work commitments and moving house. But that does mean I have a new basement shop now and some new tools and in fact a whole new facet to my hobby after being given a lathe by a friend I’ll do blog about my new shop and the lathe which was in quite a poor state of repair.
But on to the project I had bought a elemen’tàry screw driver. Which is an exalant tool, however I did note that it was just an extension driver bit in a hanle so I thought I would have a go at making my own as I like a long handled driver for some job’s. So I got the longest bit extension I could find which was 300 mm about a foot long. The lad that gave me the lathe also gave me some tools and logs, so I’m not actually sure what wood this is but it was nice and dry and about the right size. Now I adapted this from a project for making a turning tool in a book on turning. I used a 15mm internal diameter plumbing fitting for the ferrel.
