Ha! Thanks for the mention Joe.
Thanks for being a good sport about the cardboard tube Joe. I usually use a little larger tube, but that’s the one that was laying on the lathe tools cart when I thought to send it to you. So much stock comes in cardboard tubes I always have some laying around. I do usually go past the tool and around the part a little more with the tube, but I recognize you were also positioning for the camera. I also don’t worry about catching chips in the tube. They dump out with the parts just fine. As you know sometimes the part will flip up and fall on the other side of the tool. Not often, but its still a pain to go hunt for it in the chip tray when they do.
