I'm thinking of some fun projects for the lathe. So far I have a couple of ideas:
A heavy gyroscope or top with a wrap on pull cord that will spin for a loooong time.
Fancy corn holders with a tapered sharp thread that screws into the corn cob.
Salt and peper shakers.
Does any one have any designs out there already for fun lathe stuff? Web sites?
I haven't sold my 19" X 54" WP davis lathe so I was thinking about loading it up on the trailer and going to Gas Engine shows and belting up to a friends engine and just make some fun stuff as a live machining demonstration. I'm feeling some responsobility to keep alive the almost lost arts of machining and metal working in this country.
Any ideas apreciated.
