    Rose Engine Work

    Well I completed my rose engine and now its time to start playing on it to figure out all of its thousands of possible cuts.

    This is my very first attempt at turning on the rose engine.
    The Perfume bottle is Blackwood inlaid with Satinwood and Bloodwood.

    Very cool

    I guess this is how they did it, by machine, before the CNC stuff eh?

    How as building the Rose Engine?

    Could we see some pics of the Rose engine?

    Cheers!

    I second Stuart's comment. Is a rose engine anything like a Briggs & Stratton?

    Your work surely does look good.

    Fantastic! Beautiful pieces. Not something you see everyday.

    I too am interested in how things went making your Rose Engine.

    A rose engine lathe has a rocking headstock that is turned by hand.
    The headstock rotation follows different shaped cams as you make
    cuts with high speed cutting frames. Google Rose Engine or Ornamental
    Turning for some history.

    Jerry,
    I have seen a number of different versions in action, I was wondering how your build in particular went. Did you use the plans available from AAW by Jon Magill?

    Thanks, Wes
