Hi Guys, It is winter time for most of us on this board and a lot of us may have a little extra shop time on our hands. During my career as a toolmaker and later a tool and diemaker, I made many, many tools for my own use. Some of them are run of the mill stuff like 123 blocks and parallels and some of them are things many of you have probably never seen. I have photographed many of them and would like to share them with the group if there is an interest.

Whistles or flutes can be made with a lathe. Follow this blog if you would like more info.

Brass Darts     The least expensive type of metal dart. ( $4-$20 )  Brass is a fairly dense (heavy) metal, is relatively inexpensive, and is easy to machine. Unfortunately, it is so soft that the machined "grip" may quickly wear down, changing the "feel" of the dart. Brass Darts are commonly mass-produced on automated lathes, so the quality and consistency of the machining may vary considerably. Brass darts are often used as "house darts" due to low price.
