That is really neat,Harry. I learned a lot in that video. I like that sanding ball he used on the inside and that rotating sander he used on the outside. I often wondered how good they work. I must make one now!!
Also, I like that cutting wheel for the Dremel. I’ll have to get some of those too!
We had this guy named Carter shoeing how to turn very thin stemmed goblets. I wonder if he could turn the tulip and then turn that stem instead of putting in a dowel. Boy would that be a challenge!!
Thank you so much, my friend!!!!!!!!!!...................Jim

Joe, I just got straight through to the video on YouTube using Marlene’s I pad and all the above members have viewed it so possibly try a different browser but Joe, YOU are the computer expert, what I know will fit on a large postage stamp!I do thank you all for your kind comments. I do have another video of John showing me how HE makes pens and teaching me how to apply CA glue as a finish. I’ll pop it on YouTube in the next day or two with a link here of course.
Jim., the Dremel cutting disc cost me the best part of $20.00 as did the mandrel, quite expensive, after buying them I cam across this eBay deal
The discs are very thin and even the straight cut is a breeze, I’m impressed with them. These shots of my sander may be of help to you, the spring wire circlips prevent the disc assembly from popping out of the handle.

I found that I had another video in the middle of being Played in another window, that I had forgotten about…I got OUT of that video, tried yours again, and it took right off!!
That was SO COOL!
That guy sure cut that out FAST!! He had that procedure down pat!!
OK, Harry, now that you’ve been taught, when are you going to ake a boquet of Tulips for Marlene?
Thank you… Great video!
