It can be stopped anywhere along the window as well so as to cut out any unwanted glare, but the white material still lets LOTs of light in

Excellent John
Really ideal for that job and well executed.

What are you spending your savings on? Bit of gear for the workshop? :-P

I have just been watching a very informative bit of youtube that you may be interested in?

Enjoy, it is very interesting. Just a few minutes long.

I have never turned acrylic pen blanks. That looks a really nice finish and an impressive thread.

I have made a thread cutter for my lathe, but the cutter wouldn't get in the pen cap.

Just a rub over with some microcrystaline wax and I have 5 bits of Accoya in close formation.

I wondered what it would be like and both I and SWMBO are quite pleased with it. Mind you, it didn't start out quite so well and at one point I had to go out of my workshop and get one of the bits off of the grass outside. Good job that the window was open :eek:

I was very careful when I had glued it all back together again :oops:

I've worked minimally with acrylics other than various polishing projects. It's sooo soft! Cutting threads in wood sounds challenging as well.

Had you ever been to Eisenbrand in Torrance? That place was like a candy shop. They have moved up to Templeton now.

No. Bummer, Templeton is a wee bit of a drive. ;-)a Austin Hardwoords in Santa Ana has been the shop I've bought from. Rockler or Ganahl Lumber for some of the domestic cuts . Last week picked up some flame birch that was on closeout for $3.49/bf. That wood looks pretty wild when finished.

I almost forgot to put the first bit on the segmented dish. This is how it started, after being cut on my bandsaw

I had to turn it at just a few hundred rpm because of the size and the glued joints. It's 12" diameter and the largest I can turn over the bars. Any larger and I have to put a different fitting on the left hand end and swivel the head stock and motor.

Not bad so far. I just hope I can keep it in one bit now?

good start John.
What did it eventuate into?
Is that odd shape enough to cause undue weight differences and want to wobble whilst spinning?
