    Hey there, I have a PSI Barracuda 2 chuck currently and I’m looking to upgrade. I do a lot of bowl turning and the biggest jumbo jaws available for it only accommodate up to 8.25” bowls. I also don’t like that all of the jaws for it have teeth which mar the foot of my bowls. I have a delta...

    We have a brand new CM lathe and for some reason I can not adjust the speed to go below 4. Today is only the 2nd time it's been used but no matter if the machine is off/on you cannot turn the handle lower than 4. Unfortunately we can't find the manual. Any idea how to fix this? Also, anyone know...

    Hi! I'm looking for my first lathe and saw this for 200. I'm wondering if that's too much money or a fair price. Thanks!

    Hi all! First time user and first posting. I have a drop leaf table that I was given. The only issue is the main leg is split. Would it be worth gluing or replacing it? Thoughts and recommendations are always appreciated!

    So I am brand new and want to setup a workshop in my garage. I am cleaning everything out of my 2.5 car garage that I haven’t used since I moved in and have a ton of space to fill, but I need recommendations on what tools to fill it with. My budget is 1-2K, but I can go up to 3-4. I have a...

    I built a Lathe cart. My lathe isn’t big so I had it sitting on a garage sale table without casters. It was always where I didn’t want or need it. In keeping with building things with leftover and scrap wood I created it in two parts an upper and a lower. Never to be separated – I just...

    Hello, I've inherited a wood shop along with my lab class as a middle school teacher. I found this lathe and I'd like to get it working. The drive belt is rotted through. It hasn't been used in at least ten years, probably much longer. Other than the drive belt, does it look like I'm...

    Hey folks! Got a question: I’ve got an old Sears Craftsman Model 113.228162 lathe, and the other day I was turning a spindle on it. I turned off the lathe and noticed that the piece stopped rather suddenly rather than carrying on spinning while slowing down like normal. When I turned it on...

    Good afternoon! This may be a long-shot... I have a Delta DL-40 with a blown resistor (R1) on the motor control board. I'm reaching out all over to try and find a schematic or someone who has access to a functioning board to try and figure out what kind of resistor has burned to a crisp so...

    Hi. I'd really appreciate any help I can get here; I'm trying to remove the spur on a used lathe I bought, and I'm having trouble working out how to do it. Seems that one would usually tap a rod through the spindle from the back, only there's no hole that goes all the way through to do this. Nor...
