Let me know.


That is a cool take on the Spaceman kit. Love the name, too!

(always did like that low E-string bend up to the A chord in the chorus for that song).

Ed, nice work on the balsa cones for your pods. Iím a woodturner and while I have almost every power tool in my shop, my greatest enjoyment in the shop is turning wood. I started turning balsa nose cones using my dadís electric drill clamped to my momís kitchen step stool, using the technique shown in a 60s-era Estes catalog. I later used a drill press, which I hated. I just didnít like the nose-down vertical orientation while turning. Getting a lathe was a game changer.

Thanks, Lee,
What kind of projects do you turn on the lathe?

Ed,
I seem to be a ďspindle guyĒ ó I started off turning pens, then tool handles and peppermills, and of course nose cones.

Here are some reversible screwdrivers, and a peppermill, and a handle for a gouge. I enjoy making blanks from gluing up different hardwoods. Those ferrules on the screwdrivers are copper fittings, the brass ferrule on the gouge handle is a heavy brass hex nut. You are probably aware, but soft metals are pretty easily turned with simple HSS tools.
