    The lathe that you use must be quite rigid to pull that off.
    Thank you HarryN, I've thought about it long, how to post the small size of it in perspective so everyone has something to compare to....It did take quite an effort to machine it, but assembly was more difficult. It would be fairly simple making it on an cnc lathe, but assembly would still be a pain every time (This is the reason I'm not offering any for sale...maybe in the future:-)

    Wow. That is one gorgeous tiny light George. You must have eyes like an Eagle for such fine work.

    Thank you for the kind words, my eyes are good, but I'm using magnifiers and microscope, to check fine details...still eye fatigue is a regular occurance, when working on small parts...
