    Guys, you all have a generosity that is limitless, patience in abundance, and a willingness to help that is inspiring. Without your help over these last few months I would still have a boat anchor in the garage instead of a lathe that is everything I'd imagined it would be and for that I can't thank you enough.

    Do you have a shaper? If you do the keyway is the least of your worries.. If you
    get stuck I can lend you a broach, I have every size up to 1". And bushes to match.
    Although as stated above you would need to make a custom bush.

    I just realised I really should supply some file handles for the backsaw making workshop for safety so will need about 20 of those just small functional items.

    I would like to make up an awl to use for marking where to drill the saw nuts off the templates and a sample gents saw handle as to what other saws can be made. These I'd like to be a little nicer so I can keep them as a memento.


    I also have a handful of chisels and a few files I personally need handles for since I get my tools at the flea markets on a budget.
