Craftsman/King Seeley 9x30 Lathe #3: Measuring lathe speed with an ink jet printer and fluorescent light
After switching my lathe to a variable speed DC motor I had no way of knowing it’s range so rather than buying a digital tachometer for a one off measurement I used some old tech… a homemade strobe tachometer.

Quick update on the whereabouts of my homemade bandsaw.Glueing-up the bottom wheel support: Close-up of the top wheel support opening for the wheel orientation and blade tensioning mechanisms: And the two wheels in place: When hand-turning it to align the wheels I realized that my blade is warped in a spot, which makes it jump out of the wheels.
