  9. Small Lathe

    Thank you for your reply Mark. I am looking to get a machine as versatile as possible. Maybe a lathe bigger like yours could be an option. is there a location on this site where I could find some documentation on 'some of the other ways to turn masts and yards' you mentioned? -JP
  10. Small Lathe

    Hi. I am in the market for a lathe. I have to admit that I am a little bit confused with information I am reading . ideally I would like to get one machine to do wood and metal. My understanding if it is correct, is that the lathe must turn faster for wood than metal.most of the micro lathe go up to 5000 rpm and I thought that the smaller the piece of wood (diameter) the faster the speed must be . Based of the calculation method I found , the speed should be much higher for items like a mast, pins,... What models are you actually using? I found these. Any recommendation? https://www.grizzly.com/products/4-x-6-Micro-Metal-Lathe/G0745 http://www.sherline.com/4000pg.htm http://www.taigtools.com/mlathe.html The first one is more in my price range. If you have any other suggestions, please do not hesitate to let me know. Jp
  11. Can you share the instructions? Do you need translation?
  12. Thank you Mark ! I will take a look at their logs and see what I can decipher on the technique to follow.
  13. Hi fellow Shipwrights, I am looking for documentation on how to build a new Knee of the head, Stem and Gripe from scratch for a future project, the Fair American. In looking at a lot of different build logs it seem like the idea is to create some kind of "puzzle" - excuse my expression - to rebuild these 3 sections. Of course, I am sure there is a method or plans to do that. Are these plans standard per period? Ship type? Is there any reference book I should be looking into it? Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. JP
  14. HI Larry, I would love to come and visit. Which date is the auction in November? - JP
  15. Thanks for the great suggestion Grimbler ! I checked out your build logs and it is looking great this far.
