Yesterday the treadle lathe completely finished, all metalwork is in place.
At the same time a new trapper made​​, fits better with the rest of the lathe.

For the open ball bearing, I built a wooden shield, so no chance of getting dust in the bearing.

Thanks to the total weight of 35 kg for the flywheel is the woodturning fantastic.
Witness the beautiful curls and the smooth results of the turning.

Very Nice. I have thought about making one but fear of having a heart-attack every time I turn something has kept me from the build. I would love to see a Video of it in action. Very nice work!
Thank You
Michael

A treadle lathe would be great to take to craft fairs and show turning to attract customers.

What a beauty, you’ve incorporated so many great design features. I’m inspired to do some upgrades on mine!

Very nice. I’m planning on making a spring pole lathe in the cooming months.

Really fantastic and inspiring work. Functional yet very refined and beautiful design that I think any woodworker and especially woodturning enthusiast will just love. Excellent post!
Cheers,
Richard
