Some fun projects with the end object of getting three wings up and one down as in picture 1 and 2.
I learnt another lesson while doing these, “always check the distance between the wings and tool rest before turning the lathe on”, I checked one of these with the lathe doing 500rpm and caught the left hand little finger between a wing and the tool rest, ended up with compound fracture and micro surgery and now I can’t play the piano anymore. Joke.
Also good idea to make a mark on the tool rest where the wings will be turning.
