Now I like small stuff, but this is smaller then anything I have turned! Great designs as well as turning. You had to have used a chuck to hold these, right? I still need to get one of those.

Keep up the great work.

wow, these are nice. I collect my lathe from storage next week. Looking forward to trying stuff soon. What tools did you use for the hollowing? Must have been a small guage!

Great work, thanks for sharing

thanks for all the great comments.

scrappy, yes i have a vicmarc chuck to hold them on the lathe while i turn them, then i just part them off when i am done.

alba, dust that thing off and get it back in the shop. i made my own tools out of some electician probes i found at the BORG, they aren’t the best but at $7 for a set of four i don’t really care if i brake a few.
