Nice Job!!! I’ll have to try some of that friction polish. Wonder how it holds up?

Agree with putty, nice video, and I’ve got to try that finish too. I like easy when it comes to finishing.

Nice turnings and nice video. Did you put the friction polish on the copper ferrule too?

Don: Yes I did put the finish on the ferrule as well, not sure if it does any good there but I figure some protection is better than none
