Here is a home made lathe without the usual nuts and bolts. A brilliant effort
Passed on to LJ’s from my buddy Andy.

That’s beautiful and inspirational! Great design and craftsmanship, with mostly hand tools. I like the handle he made at the end for that huge chisel. Thanks for posting.

I get the impression this guy doesn’t care whether his shop has 220 or 3-phase access at all. That’s one thing that can be done with all those disassembled lathe parts that turn up on eBay all the time (sellers take them apart to sell parts separately because of shipping costs).
