  • Thanks Bob, Great explanation. Now against your previous advice, I’m scratch designing and building a lathe. This project actually started out as just replacing the spindle for larger bore and more spindle power as well as making it a servo axis like my little lathe. Then I got greedy and decided on a bore too large for the headstock so new headstock required. Then got even greedier and designed my own pneumatic powered collet chuck with drawbar so bore even bigger now. Oh well, since having completed the design for all that, it was going to look sooo good it would make the rest of the lathe look ordinary so… well the bottom line is the existing lathe don’t get touched. Now of course my mill is not big enough to make many of the new lathe parts so….. It can really suck having a designers brain that just don’t know when to stop. 😀

  • Oh and forgot to mention, my answer to the turret / gang question in the design of my new lathe is…. both 🙂

  • Another good video. The audio would probably benefit from a clip-on mic or headset.
