Micro goblet photos
3 Attachment(s)
This will probably be the last of the micro goblets that I do . I think I've done the best I can at making them small. The ebony goblet is .048" tall .024" wide and has a stem that is .008" thick. A human hair averages about 3 to 4 thousandths thick just to give you some scale.
I made this one with a skew that I made that is .008 wide. The hollowing tool has bent tip that is about .003" The drill bit is a 1/16" bit.
As I started showing these everyone wanted to know why it didn't have a captured ring. So I tried. This one is the smallest I could do without breaking the ring. It's is a little over 1/8" tall. The captured ring is about the size of the zero on the date on that coin.

This is amazing! I'd like to see the tools you used.

SERIOUSLY?!? You are defying the laws of physics with these things!!!

Hollywood is going to make a movie about you...."Honey, I shrunk the lathe!"

Incredible work.

That is amazing! If you were not from TN I would say that was just a big penny.:smile: I would have to do some serious relaxation exercises before I could even think about trying that.

Those are wild. I was making a handful of mini bird houses last week and for some reason, these small pieces you turn must have come to mind. On one of the roof sections of the bird houses I turned a captive ring about 3/16" in diameter using a bent finish nail that I ground the end and held it in a pair of vise grips.

I was just thinking, that goblet would make a jug of wine go a long ways.

I am amazed. One small hand tremor and you'd be starting over. Unbelievable.

I thought your other ones were amazing. This one blows my mind. You have some serious issues. :laughing: I think that they are good issues though. Nothing wrong with challenging yourself. Great job and an amazing feat. Thanks for sharing.
