  • The beast is alive- new lathe setup gloat

    Well if anyone has seen the estate purchase thread in the power tools forum, here is the lathe I cam out of the deal with.
    General 260 electronic variable speed. 20/24" swing. 96" Vega duplicator.
    All of the accessories pictured came out of the estate, as well as the spiral routing, router attacement (unrelated to spiral setup), thing spindle attachment, and the large work support (big enough for bowls as well). There is a 1 way talon chuck with 3 sets of jaws plus the jumbo jaws.

    I must say that it is real nice that this gentleman shopped at general, oneway and lee valley.

    Sweet setup. I was pretty excited about my little beaver lathe I got off a neighbour....until now. I wouldn't even know where the on/off switch is on that monster.

      only 96" between centers? meh...too bad you cannot turn totem poles on that thing!

      That's a very nice setup for sure and a good collection of accessories!!

          So Glenn, exactly how many pen blanks can you mount end to end at once?

          Nice lathe, well done.......Rod.

            Actually it's 104" centre to centre. You got one heck of a deal.

                So now you and Bryan from Woodstock can churn out the turnings with those duplicators!

                ...art

                ps: Seriously, that is one monster looking lathe! That'll last a lifetime. Have fun with it.

                  Art I plan on it, but not before it gets bolted down to the floor. I threw an 18" pretty round bowl blank on there before mounting the duplicator, i don't like hearing that kind of noise, concrete anchors are a must.

                    Man Glenn... that thing is huge...

                    I can see know why you valued it more than the standard sized General.
