Default Re: Making Replacement Knob Brights.

Col,

Thank you for your kind comments.

Out of curiosity have you considered metal spinning to turn the edges where needed?
I did consider it, but having looked closely at some hand-spun items I decided that the surface finish would need a lot of further work in order to produce an acceptably polished result.

Using the present method I can simply polish the finished item under power whilst it is still mounted on the lathe arbor.
