I did a bad bad thing......

I was overtaken with the urge....and I succumbed....

Always been a fan of the "war finish" Levins....

I'll let you know when I get my hands on it...

Dave,

Don't see much wrong with giving in to that sort of temptation. Neat little thing.

One word: jealous.  Oh the very small parts I could make with one.  Very nice Dave, enjoy it.

I just remembered Cletus saying something about having a Model B Levin he was getting out of mothballs a while back. Unfortunately the pictures are no longer there due to the PB thing :(

I made some bushings for work....like work work....the other day

Standard T headed bushing.   The flange of the T was 1mm diameter    The bore was 0.6 mm and the OD of the body was 0.7 mm 

The overall length was 0.5 mm

Now Samantha Bell answered the call nicely....with one draw back.   I can't spin the spindle fast enough   Even at 2000 rpm..it wasnt' fast enough

I made 6 of these little things......that was fine.   but I realized that for REALLY tiny stuff...I need more speed

This little guy should do that..

And I prefer the grey paint to the chrome plating any day.

That is interesting Dan, I had not seen that accessory before but had no need to. Certainly an easy way to add a chuck to a machine like Dave's. Now if they would only make a cross slide he would be in business :)
