    I certainly do. They were perfectly sized to fit birthday cake candles.

    My kids were fascinated, and kept wanting to do it over and over. We settled for watching the many other kids in line make candlesticks. And talked on the way home about 12 year-olds standing in front of that very lathe, making various parts for 12 hours at a time, 6 days a week. 25 years later, they still have their tiny candlesticks.

    BTW... the Armington & Sims Machine Shop is in Greenfield Village, not the Henry Ford museum.

      Sorry but I have to ask this, does Doozer dislike us home shop guys and what we do in our shops ?

        Doozer is okay most of the time. Just not all the time. Technically, he IS a home shop machinist, he has a shop at home. I checked his shop out on youtube. But he's pretty narrow minded about things, and his BS filter is a little coarse.

        Don't waste any time worrying about what he says or his attitude.

              I don't care what you guys do.
              Why do you care so much about what I do ?
              That is my question.

                Boslab. Not sure but I think these are not silicon bronze. I think brass is what you normally braze broken parts with. If I am right and I have been wrong , but I have run a lot of silicon bronze with a carbon rod stuck in a welding stinger and I welded a lot of duct work . Actually I tried to use some silicon bronze with a torch one time . And it just balled up. Maybe it was just me. I hate working with brass.

                  We don't. At least I don't. And that is a recursive question.... just don't go down that rabbit hole.

                    I get a chubby over 1144 or 4130.
                    at which point, we should all just back away slowly, and leave Doozer alone with his alloys.

                    keeps some brazing rod around because sometimes brazing's an easy way to stick a couple of things
                    together well enough to get done what needs to get done. And sometimes it's fun to see how ugly
                    (or elegantly) it can be done.
