Now that you have that under your belt, and before you progress much farther, get a set of good calipers (metal, digital) from Harbor Freight and measure your fittings and turn to that size. The bushings will wear down fast enough. For long time users, bushings are consumables as they do wear down from being touched by the chisel or sandpaper.

Great fitting comes from use of calipers. It only takes a few extra seconds but produces great fittings between the turned blank and center band or nib or clip end.
