Really pleased you like them @duff it was always going to be fun working stuff out from the various pictures you sent me. I bought 14mm and 18mm male and female joints for reference ages ago so that bit was easier, not having any glass made the MP end a little more tricky. This is worth every penny, no more fogged up lenses or a poor seal due to facial hair, fresh air gets blown down over my face. Left the UK in this kind of weather This is the cloudiest it got to, a bit too hot at night with no AC, nothing better than being able to sit out of an evening tho. And of course you have to eat, baby lamb, baby squid, calamari and monkfish and tiger prawn dhal all really nice. I picked another dust collector from a local turner along with this piece of beech, he'd already cut it in half. Just need to work out the best way of showing off this As much as it's nice to get away it's always good to be home. The shed has been going thru a streamlining process, split in two and tooling all moved around. It's all a work in progress. All takes up time but it's for the greater good. A pair of twists got coned and marked up today. They'll be getting the file on them next. I'm putting in a wood order and it'll be a big push to get this round cleared, some nice pieces to come.
