Fun on the mill and lathe

Ferrari insists on using odd round ring nuts that require special tools not available at your local tool shop. The solution comes in making tools yourself. Here is one of these ring nuts in a removal tool made from a steel impact socket. This was my first time making anything on the lathe so my 5 hours of machining was more learning time than anything else. I'm sure the next one will go faster but I'm quite pleased with the result of this first attempt.
