the bench grinder lathe works very well. its very easy to work with. i limmited the distance between centers to 12" for better stability, and kinda built up a box around the work space. i put a chunk in the unit many times very loosley and fired it up to make sure when it flew off it would stay contained within that box, oh yeah it does. so far i have turned about 25 or so bodies and am now practicing my hardware installing skills (weights, lips, you know.) and have others drying from the boiled linseed oil bath. as soon as i finish the prototypes i will post pics for everyone to pick apart and tell me what i am doing wrong and right.

i have been practicing my weight distribution and painting skills, one question i have is what to use for lips? i know stainless is best but the local hardware store hase no sheets of stainless. i was looking for a source for pre made lips for danny style plugs, i have a source for lexan lips, but i would rather metal.

Hey Roccus,
What kind of depth do you get out of these? Looks like they'd run pretty shallow right?

Okay, so I'm back in here for ideas and find I can no longer find the photos?
Any clues as to why?
