Wood Lathe Updates

The motor I had on my wood lathe died recently. Luckily, I had this beefy TEFC 1/2 hp motor waiting to be used. I got a new pulley and motor mounts and I'm back in business. The best part is that the lathe doesn't bog down under pressure any more. I think it was time for a new motor!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I've been wanting a mini lathe for a while now. I would like one so I can take it to the cabin and maybe inside this winter to work on pens and other small projects. I finally found a good used one and am very excited to start using this new addition to my shop.
