    Agreed, nicely edited video. Have you got any high resolution pictures from it? It looks like you've made another spindle and put a fly cutter made from a lathe tool in it?

    i think the secret to getting these drag engavers to work well is grinding a good accurate point, i could probaby do with trying a more shallow angle with this one but its working well enough for me to just let it be untill it needs sharpening :)
