My Craftsman lathe would not change speeds so I had to stop and fix it today and I’d thought I’d share the process in case someone else has this problem. This is my second Craftsman 15×38 wood lathe and they both have had this pro...
I have been wanting to chase threads on my wood lathe for a long time now and just could not find the parts I needed to do it. I wish I could have made a video but I have watched this one many times and I’ll add it here: http://www.youtub...
