 Hi Guys,

                            All you need is skill and a steady hand.

I'm sure someone on here will be giving that a try David, looks so simple. I'll have to have a good sharpening session before i do.
Looks a nice one for Micktoon to do between projects!!! thanks for finding that one.

Thanks for posting David,
                                          I bet that is not as easy as it looks lol, I can see either lots of swearing when you slip and strip a petal off half way down or a trip to the Accident & Emergency department  at some point to have tendons sewn up  :palm: I dont think I will even attempt one lol.

  I have a feeling that lad has made a few of them before , it was an interesting lathe he had too  , I would like to know what type of wood it was.
  They do look really good mind and do not use much wood either !
    Cheers Mick.

Still drilling holes... Sometimes, in the right place!

Still modifying bits of metal... Occasionally, making an improvement!

Very interesting video. I was a tad concerned seeing him working with his back to an unprotected overhead belt.  But if you can simply give the belt a tap with your hand to engage the drive perhaps it is not that powerful????  Still, his end result is amazing.
Converting good metal into swarf sometimes ending up with something useful. ;-)
