2400mm not a problem I'll just have to check clearance to the wall, can cut with high speed Steel or tungsten carbide tips, I can test it out on Saturday on some scrap hardwood to see how well it would cut and let you know

Thank you for your response. But do you reallise this dowel, or pole, is 2400mm long? And will the metal lathe be able to take wood chisel, or whatever is required to cut hardwood?
I'm not a wood turner, but I can possibly do this on a metal lathe, and then machine the eye on a mill
