Good morning all. I have just gotten metal spinning tools and a bunch of blanks. It was all free. Wondered if anyone has done it?
I have seen a lot of pieces,  including a great bell with wooden turned handle. Just interested in groups impute.
Thanks

Always wanted to try this but didn't have a lathe capable of slow speeds.  Now I have a lathe but haven't gotten around to it.  A few years ago the turning club i belong to toured a small company that did spinning.  They had a contract to spin the interior liner for funeral urns.  Interesting tour. Really small shop. Three employees if I remember correctly.

There used to be more kits available from woodworking suppliers but they seem to have gotten away from them. I don't know if they didn't sell well or what the reason was.
Here is a place that specializes in metal spinning and has all the starter kits, tools, metal, etc.
