Thanks for sharing your excellent handy craft work with us on here Rogan, and the very best of regards.
    Cellulose nitrate could be an issue if stuck into a hot pipe. I actually have a few bars of it that I have worked with and it will spark while you are working with it.

    Just a note to Robjr: if you haven't worked with it yet be sure to check out amboyna burl. It's wonderful stuff, very closed grain. It ends up resembling acrylic. You have olive, brown, gray and orange. Probably my favorite wood.

    Hi guys
    Some interesting projects here I have a Smithy 1324 granite mill and lathe combo I bought it new in 2000 and been a nice machine all these years for the home hobbies it’s a nice machine .Can also make nice scope parts.
    If you have a lathe then you need a mill also.Just my thoughts.
