    Sorry only those needed in my shed Frank,

    You probably have the bits in your shed,

    scrap wood 5" X 3/4" X 3/4"
    Brass bar, 9/16"-5/8" D X 3/4"L
    7/16" or 1/2" UNF-UNC Tap & Die. ( & drill to suit)
    3/32 or 1/8" - 1/4" - 7/16" drills.

    Unfortunately without the benifit of a capstan lathe the brass bits are to time consuming to turn out in any quantity.

    Chas,

    Methinks you are going to be very busy making those kits...especially between now and Christmas. Those are just great and so practical.

    I agree with Cody. You might have just found a goldmine. Excellent idea and execution, Chas.

    More like a Copper Mine Vaughn, they are a bit of a fiddle, could do half a dozen bowls in the time it takes to do a couple of these, definitely a batch job item to save setup & tool changing time.
