    Custom Banjo Insert

    When I move out to NM I knew I would be getting the Nichols lathe, so I brought all my tool rest and my NcNaughton out with me only to find that the banjo on the Nichols took a 1.25" post and all my posts were 1". So, one of the guys at out turning guild turned one for me in exchange for 5 gallons of Origin Anchor Seal. Behold!

    Cool insert. Nice friend. Do any of the turning vortex vendors sell 1.25" tool posts? IDK.

    That looks pretty slick, Nate. The slotted hole is brilliant.
