    Hello Con an,

    What sort of a finish do you get when using a tool like that ?

    I had a go and got a very ragged finish that needed a lot of sanding. Am wondering what tool profile to grind to get a better finish when using the copy lathe.

    Do you think you could use it to copy very small fine things like chess pieces ?

    Bill

    Hello Bill,
    You're right, the finish is not good, but it must be used the sand for tiny pieces and use a higher speed on a lathe, so that it is not bad.With this knife I worked and chess pieces and solid are.I hope you understand my English is not very good.
