Holy Cow the New Ci0 is Here!!!
Boy oh boy is this one amazing tool, will it wash the truck, clean out the toilet and walk the dog....? ah...... no...... but man does it cut wood!
One of the other members, sorry, I cannot remember his name right now, but he had not used any of the Ci tools before and he was really stunned at how well they worked.
The piece that we are both working on is a thin plater, it is only about 1/4" thick, and is made from the dreaded Keyaki (Japanese Elm) which is so very hard to turn when it is bone dry. I'm not kidding when I say it rings like a bell when dry. He did very well with this piece, and surprised himself with how well he did.

Boy does this tool cut, it is a round carbide insert and is designed to do a finishing cut on the inside of bowls etc.
Everyone had a good time over the last two days, and I finally got to do some turning
I also turned my first acrylic pen, I used the Ci1, with a r4 insert, it was so easy, it was funny.
Yep a good couple of days!
