Casting Coach Z's Medallion (Video)

I decided this year I wanted be Coach Z for Halloween, which finally gave me a use for all the scrap brass I'd been saving up!

One thing I didn't mention in the video, the chuck on the lathe I used to face both sides of the medallion didn't even open up big enough to hold it.  I improvised by taking the jaws off, and attaching them on further than they're actually supposed to go with only one bolt.  This likely compromised the concentricity of my setup, but in the end, for facing both sides it was good enough.  It was one of those moments where I didn't even know it was possible until I needed it.

A jorb well done!
