Here’s a few flea market finds. Walnut was used for the chisels, cherry for the drills. These are fun to make and use.

Are the brass ferrules made from brass tubing or are the converted plumbing compression rings?

Thanks! The brass is a nut for an air line.The drills are for setting the depth of a turning. It is sometimes easier to use a hand drill, than setting up the jacob’s chuck.
I hope this pic works.

hairy,Tell me, please. Did you round that nut off on the wood lathe? I don’t think my lathe would ever turn slow enough for that little maneuver. But I sure am interested in knowing if you were able to do it that way. By the way great job on all the handles also!

Thanks! Yes, I use a file to round the nut while on the lathe. I turn the wood to fit the nut and CA glue it on. When the glue is set, I hold a file against it, at the same speed I used to turn it. One round, use sandpaper on it, it could cut you very badly. I use steel wool after that to make it smooth. It’s the same way I did this:
