One question. When drilling out the blank with a drill in the head stock, what is in the tail stock- the driver?

Clever gift idea. And a nice idea for some shop tool handles as well.

Yesterday I was setting a number of bullet catches into holes for interchangeable legs for a project. I had to push them in with a large pin punch. So I made myself a quick and dirty knob for the handle of the punch because my hand was quickly getting sore.

Once I get a lathe…...gotta get a lathe…...I will be able to make handles much better…......looking at your pictures.

Have a good day, been way too busy lately…....behind on my blogging and project posting….........

Great gifts for anyone. Nice job, one thing nice is you can pick any design you want. Whatever is in your head at the time.
