    Very cool, Jerry. Did you turn the pewter on a wood lathe or a metal lathe?

    Very nice Jerry, as always!

    Is spinning pewter similar to spinning aluminum?

    Sure would be interested in seeing how you do that.

    Cheers!

    Stuart, It's the same process. Pewter always remains plyable, so you do not have to anneal the metal. Here is a link that may help.

    Jerry that is really neat, boy, I'd like to buy the DVDs from him and take a look, but that would just add one more thing to my list, I think my plate is rather full right now

    Thanks for the link, very cool stuff!
