They are the pen blank jaws used for drilling
For a block that size, could probably use some 50mm jaws, and just remove two of them. Won't have as deep a grip, but that's what I'm going to try.
Never heard of those but now I have to look them up. :)
I did, and I'm still not sure how/what they are used for. Head shops sure have gotten complicated since the days of one hitters, roach clips and simple bongs.

I think you attach one end to your vacuum cleaner and stick the clear plastic end in your ear hole and then turn on the vacuum.

I haven't stated I'm in yet, but more than likely will enter. I did start one yesterday, but failed miserably. Got a catch, and since Mesquite is pretty weak stuff, I lost the bowl. I have way too much stuff going on right now to firmly commit, but after next weekend, I'll know for sure.

@Barb, does it have to be wood?????????

I would suggest if anyone is planning on using Desert Ironwood, please don't. The fumes are pretty bad for some people................... Jerry (in Tucson)

Yeah... found it... not even sure what it was...

:unknown:

It's made from alumiwood, you can tell from the grain pattern that's shaped like mountains.

I believe it does have to be wood or a hybrid at least. I'm just going by what others have said. :)

I think whoever started the challenge can decide if it has to be wood or not. Their challenge, their rules.

Well, at the very least it should be made on a lathe but as far as material, whatever you're willing to turn on your lathe is ok with me. I once turned a stabilized rock and I won't be doing that again lol. Made a nice pen from it though. :)

I try not to fool myself into thinking I ever have control of anything. Besides, the way everyone jokes is one of the best things about these challenges. You have a wonderful evening too. :)
