    Thanks DIYer.
    By reusing printer rods I also tried to make gouges for woodturning but they didn't work as I expected.

    There is no slot in the ferrule nor in the handle. I use leftover plumbing brass nuts rounded at the Unimat lathe; once finished both elements, they are assembled by hand. Here is an amplificated picture:

    Thanks for the larger pictures Morsa. I can see now how they are joined. Nice idea to re-purpose the brass nuts.

    Glad this was shown again in the daily emails. I have been saving printer rods for sometime thinking they could be used for something and now you have shown me the way. I downloaded J Siegal's article and am going to give it a try. Thanks again.

    Thanks, N00b Machinist. Almost any wood can be turned and most likely, any of them will look nice, regardless of the usefulness of the object.
    By the way, the finish is with tint (except for the woodturning depth gauge), sealer and lacquer.
