    An Adustable Length Rod

    This article, intended for those new to the hobby of metal working, explains how I made a rod with adjustable length. If you are interested, see

    Thanks for the article Rick. Indeed, this would be a great beginners project and a follow up to basic turning.

    Altair,

    Thanks. I do hope it helps beginners. I am toying with the idea of writing an article that contains more common mistakes that would be aimed at beginners. Far too many articles I read never mention the pile of screwed up, partially finished, parts sitting just off view ;-)

    Appreciate the tutorial, Rick. Did you make this just to teach beginners, or is it something you had a use for?

    Yes, Rick, I would say the same, it is very well documented, but could you explain some practical application of this rod ?
    Thanks for sharing
