Pen #35Purpleheart, it is. Slimline , it is.I set out to make two pens, today. I got two pairs of barrel blanks ready. I have the second mounted up, now. I'll begin turning it after dinner. The next one you'll see will be another of mixed woods.Why?Because, on the final pass of the barrel trimmer, this happened.The blanks at the top of the photo are this #35.So many things I could've got done today. But, no. My hands felt like doing something. I made a pen, and started another one.Thank you. And, I apologize.

Ball Cutting Jig for a Nova Galaxi Lathe

Ball Cutting Jig for a Nova Galaxi LatheHaving fun the last 2 days making a ball/sphere cutting jig. Turners use these as making a “perfectly round ball”, with regular gouges, is no easy task. After researching designs of jigs on Youtube, I found none of them inserted directly into the tool rest.They all had to be attached directly to the ways one way or another. It's very important for the bottom of the jig be able to be directly under the ball.Luckily my lathe tool rest fits directly under the proposed ball if I turned the tool rest towards the back. I still have a bit of tweaking to do but this is going to work well.A bowl full of various sized and colored wood spheres in a homemade bowl is a terrific centerpiece.This jig is made of brass and aluminum.Bob A in NJ July 3, 2019
