    My best friend makes these things all of the time, he makes them for key chains and gives them to people. He's a brilliant machinist but he has a friend that he says is the best machinist ever!!

    That's pretty clever. I'd try that if I was caught up on about 1000 other things.

    Odd, the guy doesn't use power feed. Cool little project, time consuming but rewarding.

    The length of cuts didn't lend itself to power feed unless there were limit switches or hard stops to cut it off. With the speeds and feeds he used as well as the cutting tool, a good finish didn't depend on it.

    I prefer to use the designed abilities of my lath, but as with anything done by man, we all have choices.
