This Thingamajig as I call it, was just a thought for a long time. It ended up being an escape for the three hours or so it took to make it. It was done on a jet mini lathe with the help of a Beall Masterpiece Turner using a foredom. They were made to fit really tight, to tight at first. they had to set for a while before they finally went together. If they are together when the humidity is high they lock up, then later on when the humidity goes back down they will once again twist apart. Its fun and relaxing just to sit around and twist them back and forth.
