Thanks for that comment! I also have a set that I have been looking at and hope to turn soon!

Beautiful Pen both on the blank and the turning.

If you have watched the last 2 video's I posted, you will wonder how many of the workers have still got all of their fingers.
Particularly when it comes to separating the paua from the shell, the guys fingers a so close to what looks like a spiral saw traveling at speed.

Pretty scary stuff.

Wonder if that is a thin grinding wheel. The 2nd video shows a dremel tool with a thin grinding wheel. Either way you touch your fingers on the wheel and you will know not to do that again. Thanks again for finding them. Gave me ideas as to how to remove the mother of pearl from the shell.
