  1. Looking good .. That is a lovely looking machine you have there.
  2. Thank you , it is very rewarding to work with . It totally suits simple shapes to allow the beauty of the wood to shine .
  3. A bronze tamper with a Thuya handle might be ready by Christmas 😬
  4. I have now finished two handles in Thuya Burr for a special little lever . As the threaded portion on the lever and the Portafilter are quite short I’ve inserted some Aluminium tube for 3/4 of the length of the handles . The aluminium was threaded to size , then knurled on the outside to be a push fit into the wood and glued . The handles have three coats of cellulose wood sealer and finished with multiple coats of Melamine lacquer.. Sanding to 2500 grit between each coat . Finished off with some buffing. Also included a picture of the finished tamper handle ..
  5. A little Tamper handle .. With a couple of coats of sanding sealer .. Will get a final sanding , finish coat and some buffing ..
  6. Glad you reminded me 😬 .... might have to sneak off to the workshop
  7. Wow that toggle switch looks amazing , so shiny 😂
  8. The B grade Thuya Burr came out ok .. Turned just to a cylinder with a little bit of sanding and one coat of oil ..
  9. No T55 is yours 😇 ... need to get some measurements from you .. I’ll PM you later .. I’m off to experiment with the cheap B grade stuff 😬
  10. Yes at least two PF handles plus one or two toggles if all goes well 😬 .. The shavings issue 😢 , is why I haven’t started playing with it yet .. Each cutting pass could equal £2 a time 😂 .
  11. For £45 plus postage you get 450mm long by about 40mm square for A grade .. The B grade where you get less or none of the Pippy and wild grain effect is £15 for 300mm long by 40 square ...
  12. When I was making the dimples for the centres one end was softish the other end was quite hard .. So time will tell .. The first one I just wanted to see what it was like .. Forgot to take a picture when I came up for a coffee, but this is what I started .
  13. Today I decided to see what the Banksai Pod/nuts were like to turn .. First impression is they are very dusty and you lose a lot of the thickness to get to the solid base .
  14. How many tamper handles did you want 😬
