The LW Ripsnorter is still beside my desk:doh: Still go to get around to sourcing the tang and getting it welded.

More pics later when I finish it . . . and I give my computer a kick in the guts and get the USB working:~

Pic three looks like a volcano from the air. The rest look like air shots of the Painted Desert, in Arizona. You been ridin' a yellow motorcycle? :D

Not the Painted desert, an Eucy Burl (Eucalyptus Concretus . . . )

Its depth is deceptive Pat but nice work :fisch: is that a scratch on the lathe I see :no: hope not Pat depreciates re-sale value. Its hard to see if there are others under all those shavings. Dusty not hooked up yet I guess.:U

Mr YP has some grunt by the looks of it.

it is beautiful Pat, what's the finish?

1st Feb 2010, 07:38 PM
Ray, there are minor, very minor scratches to the paintwork, finish residue, plenty of silverglide on the bare metal surfaces. Nothing to detract from the actual lathe, just to show that The Yellow Peril has been used:U

Fletty, the finish is Organoil Danish Oil(x2) on the bottom, Organoil Burnishing oil (x2) followed by multiple coats of the DO. I tried EEE on the bottom, but spent 1/2 hour picking out the left over wax from all the cracks and crevices:doh: Of course the natural incursions do not allow for safe polishing, I like my fingers unbroken:;

Don't worry about the scratches Pat, it's not a show pony, it's a work horse and it's meant to be worked :D.

Looks like fun Pat the little YP must be looking sad sitting in the old shed awaiting its fate.
I see one for sale on trading post for $1100 from down your way well ...........Albion.

I bet there is a trail of DO all across the ceiling :;
