Let me be the first to say facetnating. I really like the work you've done. Are you cutting the barrel/cap thread on a metal lathe?

Thanks! It usually takes several hours to cut in/sand/buff the facets. I can't give a more precise estimate, because I can't sit down long enough to knock that out in one go. Usually I do it over the course of a couple days.
