If you are just slightly less traditionally minded, there are plenty of instructions around for how to build treadle lathes too. I like the idea, though I haven't built one - although more complex, it avoids the load of the driving cord on the workpiece and is more efficient because you don't keep accelerating the workpiece first in one direction, then the other.

See here for example. If you have 400 hours to spare (and a lathe in your possession already Wink), you could have one like this:



Robbie Power has about 400 hours invested in this spectacular lathe.
It is nearly completely turned from spalted beech.
Robbie got first prize in the Irish wood turning seminar in Armagh this
year (2010).

WOW! That is really something! it looks like a spinning wheel....

Compostman is making me a portable pole/bungee lathe...so I can use it in either form , and dismantle and transport if needed for demos.....

He has taken the best bits of various designs and is making up his own, just for me...I am sooo lucky!

Will post up pics when it is done.
