You have Jedi-like sanding skills….the force is strong in you…....nice work

If I could sand that fast I would have a lot more projects done with lightning fast speed.

I had to laugh when i saw you sanding. It reminded me of the old cartoons. No that is giving up my age.

Great job on the tool rest. I’m trying to find a S shape or otherwise bowl friendly tool rest for an old Sears lathe that requires a 7/8” diameter shaft. No luck – at least in my price range. I might just go talk to the guy who welded my jalopy trailer. I wonder if he’d do like you. Thanks for sharing!
