« Part 5: Upright mortises and dry fitting the first through tenon Part 6 of Treadle Lathe series Part 7: After months of work..... »

Since my last post, I cut the mortises on the uprights (three legs) and began hogging out the mortises in the three mating feet. The tenons are quite large and the mortises are taking around 15 drill holes using my brace and bit. The vintage Stanley brace and Irwin company auger bits I’m using are a real pleasure though. Each tenon is 3 inches long and I’m drilling the mortise to 3 1/4” depth. Once the three mortises are complete, I can fit the frame together for the first time. Then we will begin the building the functional parts of the machine. Thanks for reading and I welcome you to check out the video as well.
