Is now the proud owner of a Lathe a pricely sum $$$$ was paid for it cost him a few drinks and an evening with a Nun......:rolleyes: she had to have been desperate.

His new Lathe came with a set of additional attachments

He will soon be making Balsa wood Pens :roll:

By the look at that non adjustable tool rest, you may have to get use to 50mm dia pens or put up with a bit of chattering as the diameter gets smaller

Were the batteries included?

In all seriousness though, you might be able to turn some nice things out of... apples and other assorted fruits and vegetables, carrots come to mind.
