    Default Turning small extended diameters

    Not my tip - I learned this from Joe Pie on Youtube a few years ago. I've had to use it a couple of times lately so thought I'd share in case anyone doesn't know about it.
    Here's the original video:

    Here's my effort from today. Its a 5mm pin with the end turned down to 1.5mm

    We used to call them 'knife tools' in the olden days, HSS of course which allows more scope as to tip radius (smaller the better) & side rake. Similar tactic when turning pivots on a jeweller's lathe, using a rather pointy, small tip radius tool to keep chip load/deflection to a minimum, & very fine feed. Re the Youtube, some of the Yank jobs are quite good if you can stay awake till the action actually starts. CEE could give classes. Moment of mirth .. I just tried to delete a fly speck on the screen ..

    Nice to know I'm not the only one to try to remove "fly specks" from the screen.

    I canít agree less.

    I also almost stopped watching Joe Pie because the number of adverts during the videos became really annoying.

    I not only have to wait for the action to start but also survive through several adverts.

    Please donít ask me to buy a YouTube Premium subscription Turning small extended diameters

    Hi Kafie, Guys,

    There is an add on for the web browser that skips most of those adverts !

    Though you can see the insertion marks on the timing if you look carefully and just jump past them.
    Best Regards:

    What adverts?

    I run Ublock Origin on Firefox (also available for a number of other browsers), and Brave browser automatically blocks ads anyway. The internet is SO much tidier without ads - you can actually find the webpage that loaded underneath all the sidebars, banners, popups, etc, etc.

    I believe you can use Brave browser on phones (can watch youtube videos in that browser ad free), and a quick search tells me the cool kids are running something called 'Revanced' to block ads in the youtube app, but looks like there could be a potential security risk in that one. You can also use Firefox with Ublock Origin on Android, and again, you can watch Youtube videos in the Firefox browser without the ads.

    I also haven't watched free to air tv for about 15 years. Have I mentioned I hate ads? (also reality tv...)

    Of course, the mid video shill by the creator is only avoidable via the old skip forwards, if Joe Pie is doing that now ....

    I am aware of the various add blockers when viewing content via a web browser.

    My concern is watching YouTube on a TV screen via an Amazon Firestick as I have decided not to spend 2/3rds of my life on a computer since the outbreak. Turning small extended diameters

    Joe doesnít include shill content in between his content however it seems he had at one stage during some of his miniature build videos subscribed to a monetization of his YouTube content and it was painful. This is when I stopped following (but still subscribed). His recent videos are better now and it may have been that the analysis showed a pattern after monetizing the channel (there are several levels of monetizing that a content creator can choose).

    I... don't even know exactly what that is, but a quick Google suggests there are 3rd party apps you can use to watch Youtube on it without the ads? Smartube seems to be the common response...

    I don't even like using the inbuilt apps on the dumb tv, they're clunky and 'orrible, so I just have a long HDMI cable connected from my computer to my TV, and a wireless mouse to drive with

    Works for me.

    Advice taken and you persuaded me to search for an add free alternative.

    As you mention, SmartTube seems to be the gold standard and amazingly supports and works nicely with my Amazon Firestick.
