Bouncing around the web one day I found a somewhat incomplete drawing for these silly things. They Flip Upside-down when Spinning. So I re-drew it in Sketch Up to Scale, so I could pull-in some of the missing dimension.
Turned this out of Mahogany between centers. Broke two when I was nearly finished with them – I guess the third times a Charm. I kept thinking this would be much easier with a Chuck and a Drill Chuck on tail stock end. Someday! still Fun and a challenge to turn, for me anyhow!
Here’s a short Video even has Christmas music just by Chance.
If any one wants the Drawing you can find it here, Tippe Top Album
Thanks for looking.
