    Electronics expert needed

    After 20 years my Powermatic 3520A has developed a problem. The motor does not always start up and continue running------sometimes it will start and run for maybe a minute or two then kick off. Sometimes I unplug it wait a few seconds until I hear a click and plug it back up and it starts...

    Industrial lathe required?

    I hope this consortium of like minded individuals can help me with something. What are some methods to recreate a pedestal like the one in the picture? I’m a hobbyist who doesn’t have a lathe, and even if I did, I doubt it would be one large enough to turn something that appears to be 24”, or...

    Posting a lathe for sale

    How do I post items for sale? I am posting for my Dad since he does not have email or internet. He was told by someone that recommended the site, that he could list his lathe for sale on the site. I am not sure how to do that.

    Using/renting time at a Lathe in or around Wake County

    Hello all, I have a bit of turning experience working with my grandfather in Virginia, and I was hoping to work on a project or two here in NC. However, my searches for open workshops have turned up fairly short in terms of cost and access (*See below) So, I decided I would ask the...

    Received a Free Lathe

    So my father mentioned his buddy was willing to part ways with his lathe. He didn't mention any specifics but I visited VA this weekend and picked up a functioning secondhand tool. Honestly I never thought I would have a lathe, but now my possibilities for design include wood turning. I do not...

    Jet 1642 lathe on sale for 92% off at Amazon?

    Ok, so I came across this listing on Amazon for a Jet 1642EVS-2 2HP 230 volt 1 phase lathe for $254 plus $232.50 shipping. That is 92% off the original list price of $3140! How can this be? Sounds very fishy to me. I know that this lathe had some speed control issues but at that price it could...

    Reeves drive type lathe speeds

    Just wanted to share a small tip to those that may have a Reeves-type lathe or Shopsmith. I purchased a used Shop Fox lathe and the minimum lathe speed that it would go down to was 690 RPM's. Watched a few videos on maintenance on these lathes and decided to try it myself. First I bought a...

    My first attempt at turning a bowl and a mushroom

    Here is my first ever bowl. It was made from ash that was cut into a bowl blank back in march. My wife likes the natural edge bowls so that is what I attempted. It is in a bag with shaving now, hopefully it will not warp much but we will see. I need to get a small weigh scale to weigh as the...

    A Couple of Great Books

    Just picked up a couple of new ( to ME) books this week. The first, "Bandsaw Handbook" by Mark Duginske is crammed full of useful information on setup, techniques, safety, and even projects for any bandsaw owner. I could easily recommend it to any woodworker - not just for the...
