  1. Is this for the novice ? I do trial and error to most of what I do.
    How does one learn the right method for building a treadle wood lathe ???

  2. Hi there
    I like the look of your treadle lathe
    Wondering if you could send me any information on the hardware you used to attach the chuck to your axle. Thanks a lot
    Hope your well
