    It maybe just me but if you look at her tool presentation one catch on a good hard step down and that long handle is going to teach her a lesson.
    But I will have to say she had that whole step cut release thing down. For her lathe spins backwards on the up stroke.

    Chuck,

    Your thread title said, "New Lathe."
    Have you seen your optometrist? That lathe looks used to me.

    Enjoy,
    Jim
    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.
