Things what I have made on the lathe


Recommended Posts

Having a mini lathe means making things -& the photo shows a few of these things. Some have been successful & some not so successful. Successes include the Guardian's of the Galaxy stereo knobs & the pool ball screwdrivers. Less successful are the spirit lamp (the blue thing) & the pool ball pots. I have to say that I do like the pots but I still haven't really found a use for them. I've used one to keep mains fuses in but thats about it really. Not included in the photo are the various gear knobs I've made (& scrapped) & the things I've given away as presents (pots & screwdrivers mainly), the pool ball coat hooks (shown these before) & the feet I've made for a bathroom storage unit (from pool balls).
Happy to answer any questions you may have :biggrin:

My little lathe project yesterday

20210604_155145

Arrived with a missing bezel, which was unobtainable.  So I made one from 316L stainless.  Not polished yet, and this model should have a rotating bezel that is beyond my skill set.  But this works and as long as I declare it when I sell the watch then another watch saved.

I would consider buying more divers if I could swap out the bezels for plain ones.
