    I've never met any woman who didn't love gold :) That was the only thing my ex wife would volunteer to help me with in the shop.

    Very nice turn! Nice outline as well. What technique/tools do you use for your engine turning?

    hahahaha highly specialized turning tool

    oh highly technical tool LMAO:ROFLMAO: sorry i am one of those "unethical" sign painters that seems to find a use for any stupid object i seem to come across, and the turning tool is one of them.
    first you take a chapstick, glue a felt circle on it (yeah the one at the bottom of the dremel tools box) then put quarter size make up remover foam cut out on that then take very pricy velvet square(from a dress found at the salvation army) and tightly wrap over the top and put rubber band on it to hold it, then put lotsa rubber bands on it for gripper and wa la, specialized turning tool. outline with my very favorite Jensen Swirly Q #2

    Nice....I also made some similar tools. I had tried to set them up to use in a drill but that never worked for me, so hand spinning it was.
