Forum Title: As The Finial Turns.
Well, I have never turned a thing in my life. I have a big lathe that is not ready to be used yet. I had to make a choice whether to hire someone to make 15 turnings for me, or find a little lathe and figure it out. I went with the figure it out path. I made some cylinders first, got some confidence. Then I had dull tools. So I went out and bought a 10 Baldor grinder that I had to tear down and redo. Then I had to figure out how to sharpen my tools (which I suck at, but it got a little bit better as I went). I am not very quick or really sure I know what I am doing, but the first one turned out pretty close. I suppose they may get better after the next half dozen. Original: Cylinder: What I ended up with: I better get back to my hackery.
