Lathe question

02-13-2013 05:53 AM by woodbutcherbynight | 6 comments »

I am considering making my own lamps with my Jet mini lathe. (Since I do not wish to pay large amounts of money I wish to make them myself. A Few questions come to mind. #1 Weight? As I have access to LEAD weights that can be made into any shape it is not difficult to make this part of my design so the lamp is not top heavy as many I have seen made. #2 suggested assembly and ways to make this a smooth repeatable operation, I need 4 lamps total and would prefer they look reasonably the same. Or maybe I am insane who knows. #3 What pitfalls has anyone run into trying this? Failures successes all comments are welcome. ThanksM Curtis
