I would like to know if there's any other way of making long wooden cylinders of aprox. 1/2" in diameter without turning on a Lathe. I`ve tried methods like cutting long squared sectioned pieces of wood and then rounding the 4 edges using a router bit it is very difficult for me to obtain a perfect cylinder. I`m thinking of trying with a semi-circular bullnose router bit but I still have't tried it. A friend of mine told me of a machine in which you insert an irregular piece of wood in one end and it comes out round through the other. I`ve no Idea if that machine actually exists or what it`s called. Could you please recommend the most cost effective and fast solution?
