The Lathe Book A Complete Guide to the Machine and Its Accessories


Preface

I n this e-book, I’ll share with you my love of the woodturning lathe. This can be a e-book with a distinction as a result of it would not deal with the lathe to the exclusion of all different woodworking. Somewhat, it treats the lathe as one other important device in the woodworking shop-a device that may develop your woodworking horizon and add pizzazz to your work. All woodworkers want to be extra aware of the lathe as a result of sooner or later your woodworking tasks would require turned components. When The Taunton Press requested me to do the second version of The Lathe Book, I used to be delighted, however I by no means realized that rewriting is far more troublesome than writing. A lot has modified since the first version, so there are various new machines, equipment, and devices to share.

Turning is changing into gentrified, and there at the moment are instruments and equipment that had by no means earlier than been dreamed of. Whereas the philosophical facet of me laments the simplicity misplaced, the device junkie facet of me opens every “completely indispensable” new piece of {hardware} with childlike enthusiasm. My spouse, Susan, appropriately purchased me a T-shirt claiming, “He who dies with the most instruments wins.” I’m in severe rivalry for the grand prize. I’m additionally a greater turner at this time than I used to be eight years in the past and have taught scores of individuals to flip, so I can inform the story higher.

As a result of I’ve additionally written Turning for Furnishings Makers (an in depth spindle-turning e-book with an accompanying video) and Flip a Bowl with Ernie Conover (an motion guide for bowl turners) since the first version of The Lathe Book, I made a decision to drop a few of the methods and focus extra on the lathe and it equipment. The device chapter is far more readable and the illustrations are higher. Pictures is solely new and in shade. Turning books typically communicate to devoted turners who pursue turning to the exclusion of all different types of woodworking.

However most woodworkers are considering turning solely sufficient to use the lathe of their basic woodworking. Moreover, most turning books miss the mark as a result of they by no means actually train you to flip. They discuss gear, philosophy, and historical past, however they by no means actually train turning. With that in thoughts, I’ve tried to maintain this a wooden turning e-book that speaks to all woodworkers and offers the info mandatory to have the ability to make use of handing over furnishings making. This e-book additionally affords a lot to the pure turner.

A second goal is to provide recommendation on shopping for, sustaining, modifying, and repairing lathes. A good a part of the e-book is devoted to the intricacies of lathes and their equipment. I grew up at the lathe, and I have been turning each wooden and steel since I used to be 12 years previous. I perceive lathes and how they work. For a few years, my father and I owned an organization that produced a lathe we codesignedthe Conover Lathe. An outgrowth of our lathe manufacturing enterprise is Conover Workshops, a woodworking faculty that my spouse and I now run year-round.

In 24 years of working the faculty, I’ve taught a whole bunch of individuals to flip and have a good sense of the place the hurdles are in the studying course of. It is my agency perception that most individuals have the means to flip, however this ability has been buried deep inside throughout the technique of rising up. In lots of circumstances, it has been masked by worry and uninteresting instruments. Should you learn via the subsequent 1 80 or so pages, I believe you will have the ability to regain your instinctive turning ability and have some enjoyable in the course of. I look ahead to this e-book beginning a revolution in your workshop.
