Yep, wood lathe, although a very heavy duty one. Just using some old wood chisels plus a few custom gouges. Aluminium turns nicely so long as you don't force the cut. Plus making stuff by hand is so much fun and super cheap.
I cast a large piece for the snout, using extra metal so that its weight would cause it to fill the mould cavity properly. Then a rough sanding on the linisher, cutting the teeth with the bandsaw and polishing on the buffing wheel. Next step is to cut the snout to length and tap a couple of holes for mounting to the mask.
I was reluctant to use the bandsaw, but the blade is very blunt and needs replacing anyway. It worked well enough that I might be able to cut the slots in the eye stalks with it.
