  2. "Back From The Archives" I recently ran into some financial trouble and had to sell a couple of my machines to make a few house payments. One of them to go was my beautiful Heavy 10 South Bend lathe. It took me about a week to start having lathe withdrawals so I posted a WTB ad on the local classifieds and got several calls. I ended up getting a little Atlas 618 6" by 18" metal lathe for a hundred bucks. The lathe is in great original condition and came with a 3 jaw chuck, lantern style tool post holder, and a very nice tool post grinder that is probably worth several times what I paid for the lathe. (crappy cell phone pic) It didn't come with a stand so I took one of my Delta stands out of the rathole and used that. I added some drawers and mounted the lathe to it this weekend. The center section with the drawers slides out of the stand so I can still access the nuts and bolts used to mount the lathe and motor. The light is a 2 dollar light I got from the local thrift shop. It will work for now until I can find a nice vintage one. The drawer pulls I made out of 1/2" bolts. I cut them down so they were about a 1/2 long, faced the back side with the lathe and drilled and tapped them for a No. 10 screw. The wood is all reclaimed wood from some shelves that I took down in my shop a few years ago. I still need to add a switch and I have a quick change tool post ordered for it. Looking for a steady rest and follow rest for it if anyone has one they want to get rid of. They come up on Ebay but they are pricey.The Atlas is pretty much the same machine as the Craftsman 101 and takes the same accessories. I was worried about the lathe feeling like a little toy compared to my South Bend but overall I am very happy with the lathe. It should work fine for what I need it for. Thanks for looking, Shane

  6. Decided to make string tops for the kids this year. I usually take a hand made toy for each of the kids when the family has Christmas dinner. Last tear was Yo-Yos and they were a big hit. Started last weekend and made some brass tips for them on the metal lathe. Once the lathe was set up why not make forty. There is not much out there about turning the tops. I want to thank Charles Nichols for his valued input and getting me started. These are the trial and error specimens. I tried to buy a top. Wally World and Toys Aren't Us didn't have one so I went ahead and turned the one on the far left first. Made a string for it from a ball of cotton string I had and couldn't get it to spin for the life of me. Took a break and watched a how to video on top throwing. Only thing I saw different from what I was doing was the actual string. Their string was way thicker than mine. I have a spool of window blind string which is about 1/8" thick and the top worked as it should. Why the string thickness matters I don't know. The first one spun well and for a long time but wouldn't stand up straight. The next two I lowered the center of gravity and found the last one (far right) spun the best. I saw only one suggested measurement on the net and it called for 2.5" dia. and a 3" length. So far I found that if the blank is turned round and a half inch is added to the diameter the top works very well. I also read that there is no need to make them smooth and shiny for two reasons. 1---The string will slip too easily 2---They are going to get banged up on the floor anyway. So I am sanding with 150 sand paper and will put on a Shellac seal coat and call them done as suggested.
