As I was perusing my old Workbench Magazines, I found this really cool old tutorial on using a Wood Turning Lathe, just thought you all may enjoy this throwback in wood turning. I have also uploaded a .pdf as well for your use.

To see other plans we have been uploading from this really neat series of old Workbench Magazines, please go to File Downloads.

If you have any interesting plans or schemas you'd like to upload to our digital library, feel free to do so, and if we need any extra categories to accommodate your files just drop us a line at "The Patriots Pulse" forum, and create a topic with your suggested file categories and we'll get the categories up and live for your use.

That depicts the basics and not much has changed since then either as far as basic turning.  On the third page they show a screw chuck.  I didn't think they had that then.  I wonder if it had a draw bar to hold it in?

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
