Will this be for your dream machine 🤔🤭😁

No not yet ... it would be for the Profitec 700 ... Saying that I have had a surprise offer of a lever .

However it will have to wait while I am struggling to make a square hole in a piece of brass ..

Resin. Resin. Resin. YES!!!

Possibly 😂 . Any particular colour or just clear  ?  ... Just looked on google again for some images ,they can come up snazzy in the raw .

Still looking at some Thuya Burr for you 🙈

I finally managed to get some Banksai Nuts .. I have never tried turning them . But they look like they could make some interesting handles etc

Yes they are very unusual .. I think they are actually seed pods of some sort .. I have borrowed some images off the internet below ..

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

Watched a few vids of them being machined on YT, they looked like they made a lot of fine dust when being turned. I guess there’s always the resin option to make them more solid. Any feeling for how stable and potentially resilient the core material is?

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 .
