    This was interesting- I'm really enjoying working with military mounts. I'm using one of the JAlan tools for the mortise and recess for the ring. The trickiest part is getting an accurate angle on the compound slide on the metal lathe for the tenon...

    Looks good ! Once I got my compound at the right angle, I haven't touched it since. You can't really go by the marks on the compound, just eyeball it between 1.5 and 2 degrees and keep making test cuts until it's right.

    Nice work!

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Very nice Zac !!

    Albert Einstein was once quoted as saying, “I believe that pipe smoking contributes to a somewhat calm and objective judgment in all human affairs.” One of the reasons behind this statement is that pipe smoking is meant to be a slow leisurely activity. It takes patience to smoke a pipe. Unlike cigarettes and cigars, there is a certain amount of technique to smoking a pipe. Where cigars and cigarettes can just be picked up, lit and puffed on, pipes require the development of a technique in order to get the best smoking experience.

    Zack, great looking pipe. When are you going to make a test morta so I can smoke it and decide if I like morta. I will buy the pipe if I like it, if I don't too freaking bad, you will just have to eat it.

    You're going to hate it...Banjo has a couple of them from me and loves them....but he is a gentleman of discriminating tastes...

    Why is that called a military mount?
    My very poor explanation is that it started During WWI. The soldiers in the trenches needed to be able to disassemble their pipe when hot and the tapered mortise and tenon allowed that without worrying about the usual consequences of a friction fit tenon no longer fitting after removal from a pipe. The usual taper is 1.5-2 degrees on both the tenon and mortise.The reinforcing ring helps to keep from splitting the mortise.
