I want to make a phenolic handle for my machine and am looking at an advertisement for 33mm x 330mm Bakelite phenolic rod. Does this stuff turn well? There is some 1" dia by 4' nylon at near the same price and by my calculations 4 times more nylon. I have turned 0.75" phenolic rod with little problem but want a larger handle in this case. Is the Bakelite too brittle? All help will be appreciated.
