    This vintage work is awesome.

    Gear Train for a Rose Engine

    My friend asked me if I could make a gear train to drive a curvilinear fixture on a Lindow White. I had an old gear train for a Hall Rose Engine that fit pretty closely to what I needed. I altered it and made a spine shaft with 2 ball joints to drive a curvilinear fixture. This will allow you...

    L-W Overhead Mounted on wood lathe

    Mounting my overhead on my Nova lathe allows me to do indexing work using all of my cutting frames. This also turns my Nova lathe into a nice ornamental turning lathe.

    Vertical L-W Drilling Frame

    I made this fixture in three hours so I could use the side of a router bit on my Christmas ornaments. I'm sure I will find other uses for it because it only takes a few minutes to assemble.

    Curvilinear Fixture/Wood lathe

    This is a homemade curvilinear fixture mounted on my Nova lathe. It is a Hardinge cross slide with one lead screw removed so it can follow a template.

    One coat of poly oil, one bottle of wine and two glasses. This makes a nice gift. This project can be done in less than 3 hrs.

    wine_glass_holder_002

    This is an easy flat project. It's a wine glass holder that fits on a bottle of wine. I used a rose engine around the three holes. I had to use my split table set up as the pc is 11 inches long. It takes about two hrs to make. I have several other ideas on how to make this better.

    fixed_tools_002

    In 2009 I spent some time trying to do fixed tool work. I could cut wood going .001-.002 deep at a pass. I found wax candles were faster and easier for my L-W. I was also able to cut .005 or more at a pass. A 3 inch diameter candle done well makes for a nice gift. The wax just peels off. I...

    This a photo of my split table rose engine set-up. I have a large pc being turned off the back end on my L-W machine. The cutting frame is sitting on a workbench that is the same height as the Rose engine.
