 I think it's looking great so far mate, the fact you've only just got a lathe and it's you first attempt is impressive.

 Might be worth you using some bar to practice finishing on with different cutters and different speeds rather than doing your practice on the mod/s you're working on, just until you find what works best.

Yeah i think im going to invest in some "materials" this week, ie. Sh*t loads lol

My spindle bore is only 21mm so struggle to get anything through it. This Battery mod has turned out @ 20.85mm (if you're wondering about i added a bit extra as i was unsure about the depth of cut on the threads, now i know better, it'll be thinner next time!)

My original stock was 25mm diameter which got turned down to 21mm ish, so, i think in future ill buy some 22/20mm stock instead and save having to lose 1/2" every time as thats what sits in the chuck!

So yeah, ive learnt a lot in the past week, and the outcome has been pretty good i think for a first go, and hopefully my 2nd attempt will be a little more pleasing to the eye and have an atomiser to match it :)

PS > Thanks for kind comments/likes! :)

Attention Scott > We need a like button lol

LOL Funny, it was the caravella that inspired me, i love a mix of materials and found Brass/SS was lovely, so i went with Ally/Phosphor Bronze this time round, will change the Ally to SS once i am a little more honed in my skills! :)

Ooo ill try not to! :) lol

Its just a shame when nice mods like the Caravella come out, you dont get long to get hold of one, and when you do, they cost an arm and a leg......so err, ill make something similar i guess, or at least have a bloody good go! :)

Well the blob would be willing to do a vid. There is some incentive right there, lol.

Get that out of your hand you dirty sod :D

Joking aside, I'd have one. Let us know when. Best off nearer the first of the month, lol.
