Nicely done!I've never tried cutting the radius on the end like you did, though I have seen it described. How does it work out in practice? A number of light cuts, moving the rod slowly? Seems like it would have a tendency to grab, did you experience any of that?
Truly sharp tools make all the difference, Jim. It doesn't matter what the purpose, the edges must be right or there's no joy that day!! I have some cans that I put dull stuff in. When the pile gets big enough, or I start to run out of sharp tools, then I go to sharpening mode. I either send 'em out or do 'em here (if I can). Too many parts ruined over the years..... And I gave up buying cheap. Just isn't worth the frustration. I've never done the numbers but I'll bet that cheap actually costs way more...I'm lovin' your build!!! Pete
Make sure to use a little cutting oil.. that cheap black lard oil that's sold at hardware stores and used in pipe threading machines is pretty much universal for any cutting of carbon steels... Pete
