Hi everyone, after some thinking and a lot of recent lathe work posts in a local forum, I decided to go for a mini lathe like the one in shop notes 73:
So far I got some of the parts needed to build the lathe, here are some photos:
All put together as a test:
I had some free time so I went ahead and did the drive and cup centers, the friend who showed me the magazine also has a metal lathe so he helped with the center points:
This was the easy part, now I need to adapt some parts of the plan to work with pieces I got.
I foresee some fun weekends!
