Spent the morning before Super Bowl working on a marking tool made from a Dewalt jig saw blade, brass compression nut and a piece of cocobolo I had laying around. After I finished I decided that it would make a good parting tool for small objects on my lathe. Finished it with micro mesh and friction polish. Let me know what you guys think. It’s about 5 inches long. Go Giants !!!

Really nice work.

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.
