    lathe

    Does any one have an old belt drive head stock kicking around?
    I am toying with making a treadle lathe some thing like this http://images.google.com/imgres?imgu...CtPR8AaYr4iKAw
    And unless I can find one of them on the cheap I might just build one.
    I was thinking of an old belt drive head stock and a sewing machine treadle. Of course I have to find one of them too.
    It could be worse You could be on fire.
    Stupid hurts.

    Step pulley on a shaft, pair of pillow blocks, and a way to mate or make a MT2 female.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!
