Finally organized the lathe station. Except, made a slight error on tool rest angle. Because I didn’t make the angle great enough the tools rested, but barely. So, no turning back now, ha ha ha ha, I decided to add the rope as a tool saver. This way I can claim I did it purposely so the tools will never fall. It works just fine, but I may have to fix it later.
I learned to turn pens about 5-6 years, and made about 10 pens. This is the first time this new lathe was actually turned on., The lathe was a gift last Christmas, so I was determined this Christmas to organize the shop and play for a few minutes. My 7 year old daughter gets all my experiments. She had no idea what it was or what to make of it. I called it a magic wand for her American girl dolls.
