    Oct 17, 2013, 11:18 PM - My First Crack at Metal Lathing! #1

    I'm used to working with wood & plastics but this is the first time I have tried to turn a piece of aluminum. I needed some darts for the kit I mastered for Cruzer a few years ago & this was something that I never got around to. Everything was turned on a wood lathe. Not the ideal tool but if you are careful & keep a sharp edge on your tool & go slow, you can turn aluminum on a wood lathe.

    This is the first time I have seen my knee kit assembled & I am stoked with the results. Thanks to Cruzer for producing clean molds & parts!

    On to the pics!
