The centre of Andrew’s universe is his bench peg or bench…..
The centre of Andrew's universe is his bench peg or bench pin, depending on where you are in the world. Everything revolves around the peg. Filing, piercing, resting, steadying you hands, it all happens on the peg.
When you buy a new bench peg, it comes to you uncut. It is up to you to personalise it. For many years it has been tradition to simply cut out a ‘V’ out of the front on it. This is so that whist you are piercing, the work is supported. But why stick with tradition? Andrew has rethought what he needs from a bench peg and has made some alterations himself.
