The gear patterns in the Shopnotes magazine for this project do not always print out correctly and will cause build tolerance errors. If you contact Shopnotes and ask for prints of these gear patterns they will send accurately printed copies of them out to you. There is also a Q&A list that they send out with the prints. They will save you a lot of time and trouble. Stick to building the frame and carriage until you receive the prints from them.

If you can get the book Router Magic by Bill Hylton, there is plans for a router lathe towards the end of the book. They use bicycle sprockets and chain.

THATS what that thing is for?

I saw that last week.

Theres also a current drum making movement that I'm part of and if you do a search for "koko jig" it will bring you to drumtowne.

It's a router lathe that allows for routing inside and outsides of drum shells.

Many people have devised their own version to accomplish the same task or various other like doing inlay work or cutting down edges flat and square.

I have seen several on YouTube. On something like his, I would like a plexi hood (in case the bit breaks), but he appears to be using what is available to him.
