There was a yard sale ad that said: “Lathe with tools, $40”, so I hustled right out.
I found a “Junk” French or Canadian lathe that is only good for turning Spindle work, but came with about $300 worth of new Craftsman tools. The tools were an assortment of things I did not have.
I converted the lathe to a “Buffing machine”, using a threaded rod that is screwed into two turned wood blocks. I will be adding more buffing wheels by simply moving these two along the shaft. I can replace this shaft with another with different pads in only a moment.
