"LatheTutorial">Video: Using an engineer's lathe
In these short YouTube videos I am using the engineer\'s lathe to make all the parts for the Hero Steam Engine.
It includes several special techniques such as spinning copper into a bowl shape from a flat sheet, and making the gear wheel for the worm drive gear box. Along the way I make several special tools for the lathe. The second major project is building a model gold mining stamper battery using a special method for making cams on the lathe. Next a steam engine will be built from scrap without a milling machine, casting or welding. The methods apply to any engineering lathe. The model I am using is a Boxford Model A Mark 1 built in December 1955.
