If you want to go a little bigger, the Legacy Ornamental mills still show up used from time to time, and can be had for a fraction of their original price.

Default Took a look at shop notes router lathe looks good but

Whoever has seen the plans would there be more gears needed for different spacing types of spacing. Or is there any limitations to the design. Take a look at the pictures attached of the different setups.

Are there two different size spools for these things? The one I have, I can only get about 2/3rds travel out of the router up the lathe...

Bill, I know very little about them. I bought this a while back and never got around to using it.

I just took a real quick look in the manual and I "think" there is a clamp on the carriage for the cable. If it's clamped in the wrong spot, then it might affect the length of travel.

Brian.. give the thing a trial run or two.... it really can produce some very unique turnings

I've farted around with the cable, respooling the spool, everything I can think of..just runout of cable....I think I recall reading that there is a 2nd, larger spool available, or used to be available, but nothing in my manual makes mention of it?? I dunno...
