Some of you have asked if I have any plans for making a spring pole lathe like in the picture at the top of the forum. I have two different types so here are the plans for both.
The first is a modern pole lathe using threaded bar (studding) as a handle to hold the work. Click here here for the PDF file (right click asd select "Save file as" from the drop down menu to save the file to your hard drive otherwise Adobe Acrobat Reader will open within your browser.
Here is the second pole lathe. This one is more traditional and can be made on site in the woods with just an ax, auger and drawknife. Click here to download the PDF file. This one is basically just a drawing rather than a plan but you can see what it looks like and how to make one.
Enjoy, and ask any questions anytime.
