It’s been a hectic stretch in the shop (hence the relative lack of posts here lately) but Junior and I took a day during the Thanksgiving break to work on a little side project that we’ve been planning for a while. I’ll spill more about it later but in the meantime I thought I’d leave this photo as a little hint. One the left is a form tool that was made by a friend of Jim Payne’s during the 1940’s and which I use to make acorn caps to go on some of my reel seats. I’ve always loved the way  these look and this gives you a pretty clear idea of how they’re machined. More to come later!
