Turning peg collars

We hired a "good-ol'-boy" from a small town, named Bob, to do most of the production work after everything was set up, and he was more than happy to stand at the lathe all day just cranking out pegs. Some of his other interests included participating in demolition derby's. 

I will always admire Bob, and no, I am not in any way being facetious about that.

Agreed.

Bob was a gem and we were very lucky to have him there.  Fantastic work ethic and quiet sly sense of humor.

I’m sure they will eventually.

these are more than 30 years old and I just tried to break them with my fingers and couldn’t.  I’m pretty sure I’d have broken ones of ebony.

Those look sweet. I think you’ve convinced me to use delrin.

I remember visiting and seeing that machine. I think that I have a few unfinished pegs from it that I was given by (Jeffrey?).

 

Possibly...
