Nothing very exciting to look at but I have a feeling it will be very useful. It is a knock out bar for my lathe. I got the idea from Cap’n Eddie (if you have not seen his videos he is a wealth of information) I had to use a 5/16” bar as I have a #1 Morse Taper and I found the piece of Black Mesquite yesterday at my local wood shop for cheap.
The process is pretty simple, cut the bar to length, glue in with epoxy, let dry and then attach to the lathe; my Drill Chuck worked well, then turn and finish.
Hope everyone has a good weekend and gets some shop time. I have a fe more small projects planned depending on the weather and what is going on.
