The PM2020 lathe is perfect for turners short on space, or for those who specialize in bowls, platters and shorter spindle turnings. It features the same 20'' swing over the bed as the 3520B, but just 20'' between centers. Like its big brother, the PM2020 features a 2HP TEFC motor, sliding headstock, electronic variable speed with low- and high-speed ranges, and the spindle lock. Enhanced features include a digital RPM readout, built-in spindle indexing on the head stock, and a redesigned tailstock with internal storage, chrome trimmed handwheels, and a laser-etched quill that is self-ejecting. In addition, the PM2020 features a two-position mount for the optional bed extension, a sliding hammer knockout rod with a brass tip, an attached tool caddy and a metal shelf for tool storage. Sliding headstock with electronic variable speed and digital RPM readout for accurate speed adjustmentsSpindle lock and built-in spindle indexing on the headstock for drilling hole patterns, routing flutes, and other regularly spaced featuresRedesigned tool rest geometry allows for better chisel movement along the tool restLaser-etched quill is self-ejectingBrass-tipped knockout bar concentrates the action in the sliding handle; the brass tip will not damage drive centersAttached tool caddy allows convenient access to centers, wrenches, etc.Tailstock has internal storage for additional accessoriesChrome-trimmed ergonomic handwheels provide a comfortable feel
Faceplates have always been regarded as a safe and secure holding method for large turnings such as bowls and platters. The only drawback is that they are a slower mounting method when compared to scroll action chucks. Now, however, you can have the best of both worlds! Nova Faceplate Rings offer the same secure holding power of a faceplate, but you can hold them with your Nova scroll chuck for the ultimate in speed and convenience. Simply screw the faceplate ring to your turning blank, then secure the ring in your chuck. The faceplate rings are available in three sizes for a wide range of workpiece sizes. The size of your faceplate ring should match the size of the jaws on your Nova chuck.Faceplate Rings fit directly into your Teknatool Chuck (matching size of jaws must be mounted on the chuck).No need to remove the chuck from your lathe as you would with traditional faceplate mounting.Fast mounting method for bowl blanks.Best alternative to Woodworm screw mounting, which is only recommended for smaller bowls.Can also be used for moderate off-center multi-axis turning.Faceplate mounting is a strong mounting method, even with irregular sized wood and rough cut surfaces.Specifications:50mm (2") faceplate ring fits 50mm jaws. Faceplate diameter is 3".100mm (4") faceplate ring fits 100mm jaws. Faceplate diameter is 5".130mm (5") faceplate ring fits 130mm jaws, Faceplate diameter is 6-1/4".
This plan is your guide to making a simple, functional and beautiful table. The design is modeled after the original farm table at which Julia Child and her husband Paul ate most of their meals. It is now on display at the Smithsonian where it so fascinated Mario Rodriguez that he created this plan for reproducing a similar version. Dispensing with typical leg-to-apron joinery, the table has shouldered brindle joints that lock the legs to a pair of long aprons to eliminate racking. Three dovetailed cross rails link the apron, along with the H-stretcher system, to make it rock solid. Follow this detailed plan to complete all the steps for turning the legs on a lathe, cutting the stopped dovetail sockets in the aprons, fitting the stretchers, assembling the undercarriage, and applying the final finish.
