    G0766 22 X 42 lathe - Ordered!

    Thread Starter: Roger Chandler

    Well, just as a follow up to the other thread......I just pulled the trigger on the new G0766 :o:D Not trying to be the first or anything like that, but feel like this will serve me well for years to come, and is likely the best value in a large lathe on the market today. While one can see it...

    Calipers, Digital Dial?

    Router Lift Suggestions

    Thread Starter: Mark Blatter

    Nova, Jet or Oneway?

    Thread Starter: Mike Holbrook

    So I have been studying on lathes for a few weeks now, making some posts here and on the Neander forum. I am making chairs, Welsh Stick Chairs and Windsors. I have been calculating on what work I can/could do with hand tools and where I might be able to use a lathe. I am finding out that just about...

    The Woodcraft guy told me the frames/bodies are made in NZ and some of the wiring and motor/parts are from US, but he may have been working from old or

    New LV Marking Tool

    It's real, it was on the site last week, I was looking at it. Looks to be a finely made tool, but strikes me as one of those higher priced boutique solutions.
