It probably hasn't damaged the screw too much, so all is not lost :roll: :roll:
er no - the screw got bent, then subsequently bent more being removed...

I on the other hand needed to sit down, and a cup of tea :arrow: and I've left the blank for a few days while I recover!

Jumps, jump to it and look at it as a designe oppertunity. Incoporate the 'skid mark' into your creation :mrgreen:

I mean to say, a bent screw :shock: could be a total winner :?
you are so right - I've been far to much of glass half empty over this

will fill up the glass and look again...... #-o

If you think these would be hygienic and suitable for displaying food for human consumption , then yes

so now I find what, after it's dug out, turns out to be a 32 x 5 machine screw!!!



this time I was fortunate that I became aware of something gradually rather than 'bang' ...

need another drink to calm down :shock:

Well, I finally managed to get to do mine done, but I doubt that I will have one for next month as I am in dock for a partial wrist fusion on my right hand tomorrow. For one wot don't like mornings I have to be in Toulouse, 70 miles away, for 08.00!!! Out of commision for at least 6 weakz and almost certainly a lot more!!

Still, it should at least cut the pain down a load :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

The Platters that I am making keep turning into bowls. So I am going to have one last try today as it's the last chance to enter.
My problem is that I need a larger lathe so that I can make something of a decent size.
