Very cunning ! :2tsup:

At the size this guy is working to, the cell structure of the wood becomes a serious impediment....:oo:

that looks cool would love to convert that to be able to turn pens (35,000 rpm) man that would make turning a pen super quick:D

Same here.

Not my cuppa tea but I do admire folk who push the boundaries, both the means and the product.

Thanks for those links Joe.

Just as an aside, when I do need to get close and my normal read-overs won't cut it, I use a cheap set of glasses from the chemist in one or one and a half mag'n up from the normal.
