  • LARGE Lathe Turnings

    Here's an interesting YouTube video of some very large turnings done on a modified 16" NOVA DVR lathe. This lathe uses no drive belt, its direct drive, variable speed, and reversible.
    Light is faster than sound. That's why some people seem really bright until you hear them speak.

    Re: LARGE Lathe Turnings

    that was interesting,

    I was wondering how he was going to rough it down, the chain saw was a neat idea,

    I like the lift table as well, (if I only had the room),

    do not really have a desire for some thing like that, but I do have a lathe that would work,

    it is a 1880's lathe, and has had a set of blocks made to give it about 24" swing, but that would be a neat project, the bed serial number is #2,

    I really appreciate you posting this, it is beautiful work.

    Maybe some time in the future, but it is a neat project, (was wondering at first how one would use such a deep vase, but the door on it to hid the pot and for access to it.

    Thanks again,
