I am an old woodworker who lives In Grand Rapids, Mi. I like to try all kinds of projects and this web site really gives me inspiration and encouragement. The talent in woodworking displayed here is amazing.

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...
