Oh What A Feeling

Can hardly wait till mines built/completed

Looks good Ray, got any more pics of the Ornamental Lathe?
Not yet DJ as its slow go weather is crap and a busy fortnight still making bits & pieces also.
guess you might mean the one I used today
sorry no didn't realise LOML had camera in her bag she had gone off shopping with one of the other members wives and took it with her.
Great start. I will be happy if my first attempt looks like that
Off to a great start, Ray. The index wheel looks manufactured. Did you make your own cams/rosettes?
Of course truth is stranger than fiction.
Fiction has to make sense. - Mark Twain
Joe thanks I will improve
of course the index plates manufactured one of the group members made it he also made the shaft the only thing purchased so far are the nuts.
great effort Ray.
is this kind of thing difficult with the right equipment ( by difficult i mean is it any harder than turning wood normally? )
S T I R L O
Stirlo no once you have the equipment its easy working out what patterns is the hardest
I did what anyone could do with a sliding compound vice set up on any lathe with an index plate
its the other type of work using the rocker which becomes more involved and the full need for the Rose Engine
Take a look at any of these videos I warn that these are large files 28 meg+
