When I worked bench repair every day, every so often I would do something different on my breaks to try my skill and get my mind shifted for a little bit. I would make and balance a metal top. The largest one I made was from a 10 inch disc of 1/8" sheet brass, using a 1/4" stainless shaft in a brass chuck that had a socket on the other side that I could use a power drill with a shaft to set it spinning and release it. People would stand at the front window of our radio shop and watch it spin and run down. It would take an hour. That became my soldering stand, but I still have the little ones I made, all the way down to the smallest one I could spin with my big fingers. I found them the other day and thought I would share them.
That's really cool, thanks for sharing.
