So you want to turn something. Using a turning lathe may require a
9-10 ability to understand how it works and the proper use.
What you want is a Legacy Ornamental Lathe. This lathe can turn
spindles that have a twist like rope on them, or you can unwrap the rope
and turn what is called "hollow rope " which is open in the center.
You can also do flutes, reeds, fancy spirals where the top may be wider
than the bottom,as well as duplicate anything as an exact duplicate.
How would you like to turn 4 table legs that are exact duplicates, and
with a tapper and knobs as well as mortice joints in the exact 90 degree
Here is what you do. Call1-800-279-4570 and ask them to send you a free
DVD which shows everything. Once you've seen this machine, you won't
OH!!! and if you decide you want to use tools with a morse taper, it
will handle tat as well as their own tools, live tail stock, left and
right spiral, and items too great to number that a common lathe can't
do. OH!!! And you don't need to know much except how to set the depth
of a plunge router and to turn a crank. The system has locks on it so
you can't overrun the stops and as long as the settings are the same,
the duplication is the same.
So if you're a professional like Norm who has the 9-10 experience and
you're not interested in doing reeds, flutes, tapers, rosettes,
mortices, arches, contours, dados and much more with very little
knowledge, get a lathe. But if you're not that experienced, get this
DVD and see if it is for you.
Tell them WoodworkerJoe told you to call.
