  1. Indeed there were many iterations of the Fifty Fathoms, prototypes & French Navy variants, with first models showing ‘50 Fathoms’ on dial, being the most coveted. The limited production allocation to TORNEK, USA, also found with varying fonts on the dial, are also highly sought after. Interestingly, these TORNEK allocation were initially stripped of their ‘Swiss’ jewels, insistence of Federal import regulations, & replaced with ‘Mississipp’ rubies. TORNEK found the home sourced jewels less efficient & replaced them (quietly) with the original (Swiss) jewels.

  11. My son, who is a far more accomplished turner, cabinet maker than me, decided to make his own, rather than spend silly money on the likes of Robert Sorby’s specialist tools. After acquiring some good quality vintage (scrap) chisels, screwdrivers, he found a local steel stockholders who supplied ‘tool’ steel. After making a donation to the tea kitty they now let him have a dip in the scrap bin. The tool steel (tips) is shaped on a grinder, drilled, tapped, tempered, attached to the tapped blank.

  12. @andyclient Looking good! Most fruit woods, boxwood (privet), holly, are beautiful woods to turn, but ensure the wood is dry as they are prone to cracking if too green. Laburnum is a particular favourite of mine, can also be turned (or quarter sawn) into fine sections for decorative oyster inlays. Sycamore is widely used for kitchen, food applications, due to the antibacterial properties within the wood. Have a go at making your own beading/gouge tools ?
