Mizzen Main Sail Yard

5mm Dowel in my Proxxon Lathe

I’m getting to where I can eyeball the widths pretty good and only need Calipers every once in awhile.

This Dowel was 5mm thick and I brought it down to 3mm. But I started 15mm from center. The middle bit is left thick.

Dowel Tapered from 5mm to 3mm starting from 15mm from center…
I notch the ends 5mm from end…

I use an Xacto blade and File for the notching.
