    ________Not exactly as elegant as a Munro but it looks as though it will serve the same purpose. Still got a Handle to make.

    That's CRS, machined all over, isn't it? Not bad!

    That's very impressive "hand milling" work, Chas. The pics sure show it works...how does it feel using it? Easy to control?

    Yes Vaughn, perhaps not as slick as the Munro due to added bulk limiting how small a diameter it can tackle 'side on' but it meets my objective of not catching (the reason for the shield) How it handles at depth and rest overhang will have to wait until I have a decent handle made.
    I was holding the 5/8" shaft one handed when taking the pictures.

    Great looking tool Chas. Looks like it did a mighty fine job.

    In THAT case, I've got only one word for what you've done: Brill!

    VERY nice, as usual Chas!

    Chas, very nice handwork indeed. Nothing like making your own tools and the satisfaction of using them and they working like you imagined!! Good job!!!

    Using a shielded cutter does mean that there is only a shallow presentation angle range when it will actually cut but this is a distinct advantage when reaching deeper.

    Not intending to do any elaborate hollow forms, just wanted something more forgiving when I make Vases.
