Default Neville9999's Router Lathe

This Router Lathe has been on the design board , the one in my head, for a year or two now and over time it has changed but I am now ready to make it. This is a very worthwhile project so I am going to show its fabrication here, on its own thread.

1, 2.

Due to its stability then I am going to use pre-made finger jointed timber for the lathes body, I am making timber objects on this lathe so I think its extremely cool to make the timber lathe as well, and for it to he polished in the best way I can. The Timber is Merbau, cheap enough for what I want and it will polish very well. N

3.

I am also going to use components from a sewing machine, Sewing Machines are very cool and full of very well machined parts, so these bits will be in the lathe. The motor is only 1/3hp but I can get more of them very easy and the drive line is only going to carry light objects, my guess is that this will spin very well. N

I have posted some of these pics on my Work Bench Thread but this deserves its own place. I am using my 50x50 aluminum box bar to keep the beam straight as I glue it up, The bar goes down onto the worktop and is covered with paper then three of the seven lamination's are put together, in an hour the other four will get added.

I am actually making two router lathes, this one needs to be up and going within, say 6weeks, 4/5 would be better so I guess it will be 7 weeks, the other one is just half made and on my wish list to finish as I have to make a whole new router table first, I just don't have the time for it now but I see the parts looking at me with disgust every time I walk past them so I will have to cover them with a blanket or wear a bag over my head.

why the time frame? something specific in mind...You always seem to have several irons in the fire so I guess I'll just patiently wait and watch as this progress's
