I've been asked to make some spindles for our elec. at works daughter. These will be painted black, and have a base and platform on top. The platform will have a bunch of shoes of vaious styles. It's for her senior collage project. Some kind of art project. What i do know is if it was for anyone else i'd of told them NO. Owell as much as i don't want to it's back out to the shop and turn some more of them spindles with out a duplacater. Needed a brake.
