Watch a Master Create a Simple Survival Tool on a Lathe

Tonight we have a fun project to help unwind from a long week- machining a fire piston as designed by @clickspring1 . We'll upload some pictures and videos of the process over the next few days. Keep an eye out we have something special planned using our laser cutter and rotary tool.

This is a tool for adjusting your cutters to the rotational axis of your lathe. This will help to prevent breakage from facing with a tool set too high, or poor surface finish with the tool set too low, or too high.
