Getting back in touch with my lathe

posted Sep 10, 2011, 12:47 PM by Joseph Moore
My cheap Harbor Freight lathe broke its tool rest, so I went out and purchased a new Rikon variable speed lathe.  So far I've made a pencil with the extra pen kits I had left over from my old garage.  I've tried to face-turn a block that I cut from a friend's fallen tree, but that hasn't been particularly productive.

More projects and pictures to come.
