I’m looking for either a sapling, bent wood, spring, treadle, bow or other people-powered type of lathe. I would prefer a model of a historic lathe (with documentation). This lathe would be used for educational purposes at a variety of events.

You can email me directly at with price or proposed barter and location.


PS: Apprentices are always cheaper than electricity!

Why not build your own? I know plenty of historic turners who have done so.
