Topic tags/keywords: jig tip lathe turning traditional

Hello. I have just posted a video on youtube I made from a series of videos I recorded during the winter of me turning a Bishop on my spring pole lathe. It is designed after Roy Underhill’s lathe although I made a mandrill sort of jig to turn small objects. The rope spins the mandrill which turns a chuck which is inserted into the stock you want to turn. It is not a perfected design, just a quick jig I made so I could turn small objects. Here is the link to the youtube video.

Hope the video is useful to someone.

It’s a very nice lathe and a wonderful video. I love the rythem and the sound of the cutting stroke.
