It’s like a tiny specialized lathe
ah… all these toys I want but can’t afford them all…
Cool! Who knew that was a thing?!
The exact same set is only $17 on Amazon.
I saw that too! I put it in my wish list!
Totally a thing for folks who do those types of things.
So we’ve been doing the nine days of the rosary and litanies before the Guadalupe Fiesta. Mind wanders (can’t imagine why given the break-neck pace of las abuelitas), and thought of bead making for custom rosaries. I’ve been doing rosary boxes but would like to do a total handmade one, including beads. I was thinking a lathe.
Would be great to stick in the CNC and let it rip. I’ve been wanting to try a setup that flipped the material and see if I can keep the registration. I wonder how well the 6mm would work. Could I do it without breaking the bit. That smaller size would be what I need.
This is intriguing. Thanks for posting.
How cool is that?!
Check shipping for actual price match.
$17.84 with free shipping. What’s your point?
Often not free shipping, so needs attention.
Again, I don’t take your point. If you wasn’t to pay more, go for it. I’m out.
Ha of course this exists. After I got my mill I made a custom tool that does the same thing (but no where near that compact) for my CNC router.
I had a vacuum jig with guide pins that aligned it for the back side op. That way I could make couple hundred at a time.
I must have spent a week dialing it in and a weekend making it. Crazy lol.
I don’t understand how it shapes the bottom of the bead. What am I missing???
I think you do one half then flip the board over to do the bottom half and release the bead.
That would make sense. The videos I watched just showed them doing one side, and I couldn’t grok it!
I am thinking that half beads would make excellent feet for all sorts of things, and other decorative bits. A great use of some of the smallest bits of scrap.
Oooh - I’ve got a few chairs that have lost their feet and am using random accoutrements so they don’t scratch the floor…hmmmmmm
I believe the point is that sure it was 17 dollars. but sometimes items on amazon will show a lower price than you might have seen other places, but that is because shipping is extra.
in this particular case that wasn’t true. but I can say that I have seen many instances of that over the years.
