    I've had a Hall since 2005 it has a lot of antique tooling and is in good shape. It however is not as smooth as my Lindow White. The problem with this machine is the spring is to far away from the headstock. I have replaced the spring several times. It's is just not smooth. So this week I...

    Spirograph toy for a rose engine

    After returning home from the Symposium last week I had a fresh idea of mounting two gears to the back of my rose engine. This idea was found in an old book by Charles Waggoner. He asked me if this was doable. I mounted a 4 inch gear with 100 teeth to the spindle. I drilled a hole in a small 35...
