A woodworking lathe with accessories
A woodworking lathe with accessories. Most large sizes of lathes are provided with a power-feeding carriage. A cone-pulley belt arrangement provides power from the motor, and trackways are cast to the inside of the bed for sliding the carriage back and forth. All machines have a metal bar that can be attached to the bed of the lathe between the operator and the work. This serves as a hand tool rest and provides support for the operator in guiding tools along the work. It may be of any size and is adjustable to any desired position. In lathe work, wood is rotated against the special cutting tools (illustrated in figure 3-6). These tools include turning gouges (view A); skew chisels (view B); parting tools (view C); round-nose (view D); square-nose (view E); and spear-point (view F)
