From Show & Tell of our club meeting today: Interesting miniature turning and the tools he made for the job and Keith, the man behind it. We needed a magnifier to see them.

You gotta have steady hands to do this fine of work. Very cool, just don’t sneeze or the whole collection will blow away :-)

Steady hands and good eye sight would be a requirement to do these tiny turnings, thanks for sharing Sam.
Does he use the pen making lathe?

I am not sure what size was his lathe. Remember, Bob, with small lathe you can turn only small object but with big lathe you can turn big to smallest object. But I know he is retired industrial engineer in his eighties.

I have turned a lot of small things, but these are microscopic.
