Being a newby to woodworking I don’t have much in the way of tools and equipment, so I set about making some. Here is the pole lather that I started with, in various stages. Unfortunately the pole is way too strong and I need to jump up and down on my treadle to make it work. That doesn’t leave hands free to do anything else but hang on so I have to rethink the pole.
As you can see this is a fair weather machine
Here’s the tool rest
The whole thing is made from whatever I could find lying around the place. Its all very adjustable and transportable.
I need to make a few tools to go with it as well
