Greetings Neanderthals & Normites!
Here's something a little different from the usual line of questions:
Has anyone out there built and/or used a treadle lathe?
If so what are:
The pitfalls to look out for when building one?
Useful/different techniques, etc., used in building one?
Good sources for parts (stuff like axles, chucks, etc)?
Any special techniques or methods of work while using it (different from those used with an electric lathe)?
Any (good) books or plans on treadle lathes that you could recommend?
Other information that a first-time treadle lathe builder/user would find helpful, useful, good/nice to know, or essential?
Thanks in advance for your time and comments.
Mit freundlichen holzbearbeitungischen Grüßen aus dem Land der Rio Grande!!
