Teddys' Avons

The 'Whipping' tool turns into a Lathe
cutting 2" of 1/2" Balsa wood dowel and drilling from either end
then super gluing a BBQ skewer through
 before sanding with a Nail file sandpaper board

 just to descide tip and stem length then seal, paint and varnish don't think I'll whip an eye on but use a thin silicone rubber top and bottom to hold it on the line.
Work in progress.

Reed Floats part 2

Thought I'd have a play with my new 'Whipping' tool
but first I made some Bobbin holders rather than keep swaping cotton

 then I had the idea to make them semi self cocking to save shotting on the line

Here's the first batch
Just thought I'd share
