What size lathe do i need to turn these? The answer is, one without vibration. I turned it on my Powermatic 3520.

Man. I almost can't believe what I am almost not able to see. Beside something extremely small, and even sharper, what in the world did you use as a turning tool?

he's not sayin'.....yet! If I didn't know any better(judging by his own writing)I'd say it was a copy and paste photo trick .Just adds to the unbelievability...talk about patience..and tolerance...very low levels in my house

Well it's not a mini goblet anyway. It's a micro goblet.

Did someone slip me a purple microdot or does that look like a blue halo around Sirs' head?

You guys are hilarious. No it's not fake, I can barely download the images in photoshop much less do any thing as fancy as put LB's head in there. I had a good laugh reading all of those responses however. I do make my own tools. These were turned using jewelers screwdrivers that I sharpened.
today I am trying to turn even smaller. I have made new tools from .030" piano wire. The skew works well the gouge is still to thick for super tiny goblets. I'll take some photos when I get the smallest I can do. I haven't measured my latest one. I'm not really sure how to measure it with the tools I have. I'll have to take it to the science lab and let them put in on one of their microscopes that has a scale. I'm guessing it's about .035" wide and maybe 045" tall based on visual observations of tiny drill bits next to it.
