« Part 3: Measuring lathe speed with an ink jet printer and fluorescent light Part 4 of Craftsman/King Seeley 9x30 Lathe series Part 5: Banjo tune-up »

Please excuse the messy shop. I feel like I spend more time cleaning than woodworking and it’s still cluttered.

Disc sander attachment for lathe. 8” MDF disc, faceplate is holly, glued and screwed to disc, tapped to 3/4-16. Part of a holly branch which usually wouldn’t be useful but I drilled out the pith to prevent checking, it dried just fine.

Lathe tool holder from PVC pipe. I really like this.

Initially screwed directly to the wood stand, I quickly realized it needed spacers to let wood chips fall through.

Probably posted this before but it’s in the same album so why not. Tool holder for lathe bed, pvc & plywood.

Also replaced the plastic speed control knob with one made of walnut but I forgot to take a picture.

Cool looking tool holder Rick. Good idea with letting the chips fall to the floor. I myself keep finding ways to improve working with the lathe.
