Using the Swiss Type Lathe
The Swiss type lathe is a basic lathe and is also used for cutting circle shapes in wood. It is very simple to use and you will not have any problems with it. It is a complicated machine that requires a lot of practice to become proficient with it. There are, however, some rules that you need to follow to avoid wasting time and turning your woodworking projects into duds.
The first thing you should do is take some basic knowledge about the lathe. This means learning how to turn your work piece by hand or by the use of a chuck. You will be amazed at the difference this simple procedure can make when using a Swiss type lathe.
Once you get used to turning the work piece by hand, you will be able to get more accurate cuts when using a Swiss type lathe. This is because your hand will have more range. You should take care when turning the work piece, however. You need to remember to bend the wood correctly and to do so gradually. Don’t leave it for a minute to cut too short.
Once you are comfortable with turning the work piece by hand with the Swiss type lathe, you can start to move on to doing it the machine. You can also use a continuous turner instead of a chuck. You can move the work piece around the large blade of the machine for making intricate designs and patterns.
Use the controls device to control the movement of the work piece with the use of the switch. This will allow you to make all the various angles that you want. For accuracy, you should also try to make it like the image of the piece you want to make. Then use the controls to move the blade for making the desired angle.
After the angle is made, you should finish it off by finishing off the piece as you started it. Do this by passing the piece over the table or turning it on the lathe with the table attached. By doing this, you can get rid of the dust and other particles in the wood. After it is finished, you should wipe it off carefully using a rag or a piece of cloth that is suitable for woodworking.
Your work piece should be clean before you put it on the table of the Swiss type lathe. You should see if it is completely flat before starting. When you see that it is, you should mark out the middle of the piece and make it round. Then place the work piece on the table and clamp it with a screw driver to hold it.
In order to do this, you should place the work piece on the bed of the Swiss type lathe. Then you should turn the lathe upside down and the second one on top. You should also hold both the lathe and the work piece and turn them clockwise to make them come up.
