Some small parts machining.

I won't say as of yet what these go to, but I've been working on a project that needed some flair. I wanted some fasteners that looked better than simple bolts and nuts, so I decided to turn some simple spikes and thread them to act as nuts.
I set them up in the lathe and turned a taper on the end, then reversed them in the chuck and bored and threaded them. After a light polishing, they were good to go.
For some reason I forgot to take pics of the finished product, except with them in place on the gun.
I'll add pics of the project after tomorrow. The people attending the blog shoot tomorrow will get to see it before I post it up here.
