    And you thought *your* lathe was difficult...

    Hey, folks,

    Cool video about how things used to be if you wanted to turn. Pretty clever setup, really... if you have an apprentice:



    Thanks,

    Bill

    Very interesting. But some things never change. Some curious indexing holes in the headstock. Wonder how those were used. 18th century turners were called 'boggers' and were the lowest paid of all craftsmen. Like I said, some things never change.

    I don't care for the lack of horsepower on his lathe, but I do envy his electric bill. Overall, pretty neat stuff, that is why I enjoy going to so many museums and stuff.
    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
