My new very slow speed lathe with a no touch cutter.
OK - it is a homemade Rotary Tool for my laser.
The wood is really on a Pen Mandrel.
The way it works - The laser is aligned on center Y axis. The laser (chisel ) moves as required on the X axis as the work turns.
This is how I can make things like the Puzzle Pen shown here a little while ago.
Lotza fun building this. Lotza ideas on how to use it spinning in my mind.
I do have a wedding this spring so I will be using it to engrave wine bottles and glasses also. The wine bottle rests on the 2 rubber wheels with the pen mandrel part removed and a free wheeling support holds the other end of the bottle.
