Hey fellow saw dust junkies! or should I say “man glitter”? lol
Had a lot of recent changes in my life, me and my girlfriend got a new house and I had to move my shop and its almost done (If you can ever consider the shop done). We bought a new lathe from harbor freight and we both love it! The file handle out of oak on top she turned herself and then I had a whole new set of hollow chisels for a drill press mortise attachment that I have never used in almost a year so I figured I would get more use out of them as real life chisels so I turned new handles for them and they look and work great. Of course I used her file handle as the inspiration since she is the brains behind the operation lol, Its hard to argue with a lady engineer fellows. Thanks in advance.

Very nice, but I assume that last picture of the lathe is a before picture or did the brains behind the operation get you tidy up? LOL

acredito que deve funcionar só em madeira macia.
I believe it should work only on soft wood.
