Brads shop
Jan 25th, 2013 at 12:10am
 
Just joined the forum. Here are a couple of shots of my workshop in the backwaters of Tasmania. Have included a picture of my big lathe,smaller lathe,thicknesser and planer.Also in the workshop is a big old bandsaw,ripsaw,shopsmith and various handtools. On the big lathe I turn round windows (segmented construction/ outboard turning). The 2 larger ones you can see on the floor behind the lathe are 1200mm/4ft dia. This lathe is capable of turning veritable logs between centers. I also enjoy making furniture and sculptures. I look forward to being a part of this forum.

WOW that's a really big lathe, is that sitting on it's own footings?

You must be a pretty big guy too Brad, look at the size of that shoe!   Cheesy

Welcome aboard, good to have you here. 

How long have you been turning?

"is that sitting on its own footings"
The workshop has a concrete slab that is way out of level,I think beacause it was originally designed as a carport enabling a car to be driven in and out.I wanted the bed of the lathe to be level so the tailstock end is bolted to a chunk of timber that in turn is bolted to the floor.

Hi Breck. The lathe was originally made "in house" at a foundry/engineering works in town. It was made for their patternshop.It's got 8 speeds with the slowest being particularly slow for large diameter outside faceplate work.4ft dia is the largest I have done so far but up to 8ft is possible.
There are bigger lathes out there...check out Robbo's link on one of the earlier replies.

Nice. You're equipped to make some nice large stuff. And probably just about anything else too.
