Twisted Rods

Sir,—With reference to your problem of twisted brass rods.

I have recently completed a Fowler Big Lion and the method I employed was as follows: -

Square brass tube was cut to 1 in. plus, annealed and filled with lead, a bush with a square hole was fitted in the chuck and another in the tailstock. The brass was then placed in the holes and the chuck pulled round the required number of turns, after which the lead was melted out.

Incidentally I worked at Savages, King's Lynn, for a brief period. (February 1969) C. Lines
