Great start. I will be happy if my first attempt looks like that

Off to a great start, Ray. The index wheel looks manufactured. Did you make your own cams/rosettes?

great effort Ray.
is this kind of thing difficult with the right equipment ( by difficult i mean is it any harder than turning wood normally? )

Stirlo no once you have the equipment its easy working out what patterns is the hardest
I did what anyone could do with a sliding compound vice set up on any lathe with an index plate
its the other type of work using the rocker which becomes more involved and the full need for the Rose Engine
Take a look at any of these videos I warn that these are large files 28 meg+
