The last several days have been busy. There is a lot going on and not just with the FH30. I've got a kit on the workbench that I'm building out. Sorry, no pics yet...but it's maple with rerings.
As you can see, I've made some fabulous forward movement with the lathe. I had to fabricate some parts to get the knives on the machine and build a die lube tank pressurized by the pneumatic system. Pictures are a thousand words. Video below. It's getting there and I'm ecstatic!!
Steps ahead to drumsticks

You've put lots of hard work into getting that back knife lathe running Frank and it's exciting to see it operational. Keep on posting these videos so we can track the progress. Excellent work.

make a plug for your eye and make it snug but not to snug and adjust your roughing nice accordingly. it took forever to get mine running but thats fastest way. welcome to the journey of stick making. if u have any lathe questions feel free to ask firstname.lastname@example.org
