pad recessed Alph


#1

Just did this today, I only got one half done and it took about half an hour on the wood lathe, mainly because I needed to touch up the tools every few minutes to keep them sharp. I did some practice on a read/write head from a VCR (2nd and 3rd pics). I’m gonna do the other half tomorrow. Remember all this was done freehand on a wood lathe, not a metal lathe.

This was just a practice recess

This pic was practice for a possible chop of the alph, but im gonna need to make a draw bar before I do it.

I think the head from the VCR was a different aluminum because it cut ALOT easier and alot faster than the alph.

That takes some serious guts to do that on a wood lathe.

Only to you. What I meant is if he can do that on a wood lathe then he has an advantage over some with a metal lathe.

#10

ummm what you just said makes absolutely no sense


(M²) #11

does it make sense now?


#12

“why would i are if you take your lathes over too fresh’s big boy”

the sentence above makes no sense whatsoever so lets both just stop cluttering up the thread

Adding a “c” before “are” is hard yes.


#14

and how exactly am I supposed to know thats what he’s trying to say?

maybe if people read what they wrote before posting it we wouldn’t have this problem


(M²) #15

fixed

I do agree that the mistake was hilarious and dumb at the same time. But drawing that line wasn’t too hard.
