Need a lathe, build one. Details included

Recommended Posts

I like how that guy uses hand tools to built it!

 

Here's a link to a similar treadle design, complete with schematics and bill of materials

I must say it would be a lot easier to find an old flywheel like in the video and use that instead of crafting one out of wood!

I have a few pulley wheels from haybale hooks I was going to use this design as a base for a treadle grindstone at some point.

 

Thanks for posting the vid, Glenn!

He has some nice tools and he knows how to use them.  That slick he made the handle for is a monster.  It seems like the only time you see those anymore is for boat building or timber framing.  Great stuff.
