Thats great thanks, Dalboy has also offered to make copies kindly for me also. I hope to get in the workshop this weekend and give everything a go. I briefly offered up the two faceplates in the pictures to the threaded bar in the headstock and they are too small to screw on, i'll have to look...
Well, i had a tidy up and set up the 2nd hand M950 lathe i got during the week. I took some time to scrape some of the gunk off of the body and i unscrewed the black endcap to the motor fan and the metal around the pullys to give it a spray with air and hoover up any dust i could.
Just some basic bowl turning (gradually of different sizes up to the capacity of the lathe), pen pots, nothing too taxing to start with. With the tools as well it will hopefully give me a good basis to practice and work from. :lol:

I'm having a problem with it and i'm afraid it's the second time it has happened. I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
I can't adjust the blade enough to protrude through the sole. It appears the thread is thicker over an 8mm area preventing any further progress. Any ideas what could have...
Thanks for your opinions guys, it's rather unanimous don't you agree?
When i spoke to the person they were saying how much they liked it, that it was good quality and they couldn't bring theselves to part with it.
When i saw it, i thought hmm? the finish alone rang alarm bells
I think i'll...
First off, apologies for the length of this post. Secondly, I've got a few questions regarding a dining table and chair 'set'.
The client wants me to produce a table top and two chairs to match the existing set. The idea is to replace the top with solid wood (rather than the current...
Thanks for the link engineer
By the sounds of the reply's i guess it shouldn't be much of a problem, it's good to confirm this. I will do a check when i've machined the shelves up before they go in like you suggested engineer
