I like the way that you present the design and build of your follow rest in small video links. Overall you are going to have a very usefull piece of tooling for your lathe. I look forward to the rest of the build.  :D :D

Cheers  :beer:

Hi

I saw on the video that you need very small circlips.  Could you use a coil from a small spring.

I'm looking forward to the next instalment. :clap:

Common sense is unfortunately not as common as its name suggests.

I love the way you always introduce yourself as Keld in Denmark. Every country should have a Keld!
And the way you approach your projects, great to watch, thanks.
