Perfection, a shame to paint it!
Couldn't agree with you more Tom, spot on Dazza!

Looking forward to whatever is next,

Best,

Tom

More top quality work Dazza. The Turnado system I understand to be using hand held tools which I know more as Graving. The people I know who use Graving are the 2mm finescale workers where they are making very fine cuts most of the time.

Making stuff in the Red Room, doing stuff the hard way :lol:
However it is a journey of skill acquisition that is fun

Making tools to make the 1.60mm diameter rivets for the smoke door hinges.
I will not be surprised if this does not work, but I have a few approaches to try with this method.

Last night was proof of concept. I was pleased it worked. I made a second one to ensure it was not a fluke. I will make the rest of them soon and alter the settings to get a flatter dome.

When you say 1.6mm dia rivet, do you mean stem dia or head dia?
Impressive, regardless of which :mrgreen:

Squeeze the tweezers too hard and "Ping" , two were teleported to another time and dimension last night. One was ruined, too tight a fit. But the last one was made in 15 mins, I am getting across the process and feel. 5 to go. I use a sharp centre pop to make them a press fit. The hinges will be silver brazed into the door. It is fun. Not some thing I want to do every week and I will be sated when these are done.

Looking forward to you starting your 5" gauge loco given the standards you set yourself.

One inch copper via ebay meets lathe and the Turnado.

A superb piece of turning work, you should be very pleased with yourself Dazza.
One thing puzzles me, what is the purpose (if any) of the O ring on the parent stock?

Thanks and I was wondering if some one would notice and ask.
It works like a little dam wall , it stops the coolant flowing towards the chuck and then being flung off. Keeps me and the surrounds a wee bit more "coolant free"
I lay claim that I conceived the idea all on my own.
The Turnado tool is used dry
