I'm also pumped because I now have a 24 inch lathe,,,,,,,Man,,DAS bushings are gonna be churning out and I may just do some custom length DAS bushings for people that need them. I also think I will make a replacement set for Gamemasters and Dorado's to ILF.

NO DOUBT, SAM that is cool, the bushings....I have a pile, but the odd sizes will be good for the TD-3 crowd.

Sam, new here, I picked up a pearson spoiler over the weekend. Have you ever done one of these? I now have a blk bear and spoiler and planning to have them converted over the next few months. Bob

Sam ,think of me next time you're crankin' out some DAS bushings, as I'm having to swap a set back and forth between two sets of limbs. Give me a holler, whenever, and I'll send you something, or cash, at your preference. James

I will as soon as I get set up and get some half inch brass round stock. I'd like to experiment with some bigger Bushing heads more ornate.

My oldest brother is a jeweler, and has some ruby cabochons that would be the cat's meow, set in a domed bushing. I'd need the dome dimpled to have an easier time of it with a Foredom.
Knife bushing mosaics would be doable, and being perfectly round, and uniform diameter, something that could be cut on your lathe.....a new cottage industry for my warf buddy, maybe? James
The line forms HERE!
(Holding second place in line for my buddy, Steve)...so line forms THERE, I guess.

I have not done one in so long I do not remember but I think they need to be shortened for ILF dims. I will see if I can buy one on fleabay and convert it to see.
