That’s awesome and looks like he did an excellent job.
Keep him going, let him turn more and sell them to his buddies….never know where it could take him.

Great job. However, I don’t see any hearing protection while at the lathe.

A bit late on this one, but great job! I’m not sure the comment about hearing protection is so relevent on a lathe. Mask maybe!?

Anyway, great to see you passing on your knowledge and skills
