Now that's a lathe. What is the capacity/brand? Come on man don't leave us hanging.

Do one thing at a time, do it well, then move on.

It's a LatheMizer...a toy...eerrrrr.....attachment for my new LT 28 WoodMizer sawmill. It comes standard at 8' and I got a section comin' to stretch her out to 12. This post I made was a red pine butt log that was too big to use for legs or railings. I was burning them because I couldn't use them, but now they are any size I want them. I can put up to a 16" log on there. The head is indexed and you saw it into an octagon. Then you fire up the lathe and take 1/16 on the cut scale per pass. the band blade acts like a chisel. I'm planning on doing a few more tomorrow and I'll get some better shots.

That is the biggest lathe I've ever seen. I seen the model of saw mill but didn't know they had that attachment. Really neat.

Days without a wood project just are'nt worth getting up for.

lathe

Gee whiz, aint that a big one. watched discovery prog on modern sawmill and although you have not got laser centering, you can do what a mill costing half a million $ can do.

posts are always in demand and with your ability to give custom sizes should be a nice little earner.
