Metal Spinning

This article written by Howard Cohen appeared in the 2009 November issue of Chips & Chatter.

Brendon demonstrated metal spinning, he uses candle to get wax on surface. He uses a steel bar with a large radius on the bottom. There are no sharp edges, as that would cut the material. Brendan starts underneath the centerline and presses towards the spud. He uses a light but firm touch and rolls the bar to avoid building up too much heat on one edge. In this case he is using Pewter. Sims metal recycling on Monterey Highway (down past Southern Lumber) has any metals materials you would need. His tools are stainless steel.
