« Part 13: Tailstock Part 14 of Treadle Lathe series no next part

The project is finally done! I have been working on this project since late August. The final part of the project was to build the tool rest. It consists of a base plate with a sliding through mortise. The upright is mortise and tenoned into the baseplate and the steel prefabricated rest mounts within a 1 Inch hole on top. The steel rest is adjustable with a finger screw. The tool rest mounts to the frame and is adjustable front to back, side to side, up and down and can twist. The tool rest fastens to the frame with a wedge.

The lathe has been oiled and ready for use!
