Thread: what did santa bring?
25/12/2016 23:22:04

Wohoo! I got my first lathe at last ! It's an axminster diet c2a 300w (second hand)

I haven't used a lathe since I was in college 25 years ago so I've got some learning and refreshing to do

All I wanted was one of those fancy spinning tops that spinfinity do, but after my oh saw the price she thought it would be better to get me a lathe to make my own !!

So, does anyone know any books or instructions of some sort as to how I go about making one? I think I have a lot of learning to do ahead of me, going to order a 6" 50mm ria chunk of copper bar and see how I get on (has anyone on here made one before??)
