    Another none shaving Item from my shop. As long as no one minds I like posting other stuff I turn here. This is another TIG torch back cap.


    And while I was looking at some of my UV light reactive rock collection I discovered this is also UV reactive. Bonus.

  3. Very cool.

    Here is a handle I made for @twhite recently. It can be used with SEs with the adapter screw I included or DEs without the adapter screw.

    Here is the razor head he sent me a picture of with the handle. It's the TOMX a tribute to the FAMEX and is one of his creations.

    Hmmm. I see Lincoln TIG mate when I search that but I don't see Weldmate.
    I was also asking about the torch size but wasn't specific enough. A lot of torches go by 9 style or 20 style torch to specify what size the consumables are.

    I think this is a Canadian company. I'll take a look at it and get back to you :)

    I know this isn't brush turning, but certainly gives interesting ideas.

    I've been wanting to try to make a handle for a Schick E or G. I just couldn't bring myself to destroying a good original handle. Thanks to a friend on another shaving forums who sent me this razor head. (It was already missing a handle.) I used a drill press, band saw, table router and lots of hand sanding to make this acrylic/resin handle from a pen blank I picked up at my local Woodcraft.

    As this thread is for brushes, please start/make future non-brush related posts in their appropriate forums. For example, if there isn't one already, start a 'Handlemakers Thread - Calling all Turners' thread in the General Shaving Talk forum and post razor handle turns there.

    Thanks all!

    That is very nice. I have made several replacement handles for Schick E/Gs from different woods, and I can appreciate the time and effort it takes for such a little piece. Beautiful, just beautiful.
