Recently there was a thread containing a Video of setting up and using a REPTON RT1 radius turning attachment.

Meant to go back and watch it, but can't find it despite looking through the October postings.

Anyone know where it can be found please?

Thank You Michael, but that's not the one.

Within a thread there was a Video posted of a Repton RT1 being set up, and having a guard made and fitted to keep swarf out of the taper roller bearing.

Frustratingly, I cannot now find it to study bin greater detail, despite checking almost every post since the beginning of October, and I am sure that it was this month!

Again, Thanks

A search on YouTube turned this one up:

Repton radius turner set up and use

I haven't watched it myself as I have a home brew version. I have to say, the comments don't inspire confidence!

A while back I was considering making a ball turner. As the Repton was no longer available one of the possibilities was to make a Repton clone.

While searching for info on the Repton I came across two videos on setting it up on the Little Machine Shop website - perhaps one of these is the video you are referring to.

The videos could be viewed by clicking on the "Chris's Tips" tab about halfway down the page, Unfortunately, all one sees now are two black boxes "with this video is unavailable" inside.

I realise that this is not particularly helpful other than perhaps to save you wasting any more time searching for the video. On a positive note, the site does still includes a link to setting up instructions in PDF form that may be useful.

Hi John!

Yes that's the one.

Thank You

Having viewed it, Making a means of stopping swarf getting into the taper roller bearing is on the "To do" list, now.

The mini lathe certainly seems to slow down appreciably when he puts on the cut, or maybe that is an optical and audible illusion.

Never got on with the "genuine" instructions, so wondered if this would be an improvement..

My method has been to use a fixture to center the tool, and the Top Slide to apply the cut. So shall most probably stick with what has worked for me.up until now.

Again, Thanks for finding it for me.
