Close encounter

Here are the mark II bowl mandrel tangs.  Hand forged this morning and pretty sharp.


Well they seemed to be in focus on the tiny camera screen.

Somehow or other (as they are wont to say in Health and Safety Executive enquiries) one of these flew out of the hole in the mandrel as I gripped it with the Moles to remove it prior to enlarging the hole.  It flew through the air invisible.  I found on returning home a very small blood stain in my beard.  Don’t worry though, no damage to the beard.
