Chisel Holder

It helps to have a chisel holder when you are working on a lathe. Most Woodturners like to change chisels frequently, and it is a real timesaver to have them handy.

Lathe with Ballast Box and Trestle Legs

About a month ago, I picked up a Jet 1642 EVS 1 1/2 HP lathe. Since I am primarily a bowl turner, I wanted to raise the lathe up to a more comfortable height. And while the Jet 1642 does weigh 435 lbs by itself, (IMHO) a ballast box for adding some weight would only improve its performance. Information is copyright of its respective owners.

Stand, Mini Lathe (PDF)

A mini-lathe packs some pretty serious turning capability into a tiny package. But just because they are small does not mean that you can set your mini-lathe up on a wimpy, lightweight stand. Just like a full-size lathe, a mini-lathe needs a stand that is heavy and rigid enough to absorb vibrations. The cutting diagrams and materials list are available to download in this Online Extra.

Turning Tool, Making a

To make most tools you need to be able to turn a handle, drill a hole, cut a piece of steel, tap the hole in the steel, and put it all together. Since tapping is no harder than driving a screw, you have probably done all this. We just have to put it all together and make a tool.

Lathe, Flywheel

I wanted a lathe that was portable (which flywheel lathes traditionally are not) and used a minimum of modern fasteners. Simple lap joints and wooden bolts provide a somewhat less rigid frame, but it is lightweight and easily knocks down flat for storage or transportation.
