I thought my brass hammer was the smallest, Darn
11 years old when I did this, made a lathe with a small motor and some wood down in the basement.
Used some off mom's sewing needles that I ground down for tool bits, and she was very very upset, I didnt tell her I was going to grind the tips off.
She kept my allowance for 2 months, boy that hurt, $.25 cents x 8 weeks =$2.00.
I did learn my lesson.

Beautiful work. And '67 was a great year for pennies.

Regards,
Terry
Thanks, I could never do that again in my life, to blind, to shaky,.
'67 wouldn't be special to you other than for pennies??

The penny could be made into a neat backplate.

Here's mine. You might have to zoom in to see it. I made the ball peen head out of the shaft of a needle, and used a splinter of hickory I plucked out of my hand for the handle. Hold on, I dropped it...

I think I see it. It's stuck under the fingernail on your pinkie.
