Topic tags/keywords: jig

just finished the first order of parts on this lathe!

I added onto a lathe I had built a while ago using an atlas 6” metal headstock. I had to re-machine the chuck to fit the headstock

In the back the template can bee seen.

Looks like you built your custom lathe… and it works great for making those rosettes!

Very good!

COOL way to solve a problem! :)

The forum is cutting off most of the picture. I recommend right clicking on the pictures and open picture in a new tab, they will make more sense.

Looks good Reo.
