[WIP] Woodworking Lathe -- Late 1800's

[WIP] Woodworking Lathe -- Late 1800's

Postby Dave R » Sat Apr 20, 2019 5:22 pm

A little start on a model of a cast iron woodworking lathe from the 1800's. This one is designed to be driven by a wide belt from an overhead line shaft so head stock and the stepped pulleys will be next. The bed is intentionally short at this point to make modeling the rest of the parts that go on it easier.

FWIW, the components are all solid. I might make a scaled down version of it and 3D print it.

:thumb: :thumb: Very cool ! Curious where you found dimension drawings of the various parts. It's pretty hit and miss when I try and find dimension drawings for cool old stuff online ( usually miss ). Looking forward to seeing it printed. :thumb: :thumb:

Thank you. Old text books are good sources for this sort of stuff.

Thank you Bryan.

A little more progress. Tailstock isn't finished yet and I need the hand wheel for the tool rest.

Thank you Liam.

A little more progress this morning. Not happy with the back part of the tail stock casting. It needs work but I decided to leave it for awhile and think about it. On to other parts.

Only a little more progress. Hand wheels, reworking the tail stock casting and a bunch of small parts left to do.

Thank you.

Lathe has turned to the back burner but I did get handwheels and a few other parts modeled.

Thank you Bryan.

Thanks to Aaron and his live stream modeling, I found an engine to power it with. This one actually might be overkill for just a lathe, though.

Hello Dave,
i like your lathe and steam engine. The steam engine seams to be a little bit oversized for your lathe.
In former days they had spezial models to fit the needs of small workshops. Here an example hanging on a wall:

I found the drawing some time ago in the internet and started a sketchup drawing. As you can see still wisp (work in slow Progress).
To build a live steam model you find a similar engine here:

Hello Dave,
today i founnd your steam engine at the 3d-warehouse. https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/model/fece5c92-7dd7-44fc-bd1e-7ae20f04a6b1/TWIN-CYLINDER-HORIZONTAL-STEAM-ENGINE
After some colour/material adjustments i made a quick twilight render.

I hope you like the result.

Looks like a good rendering. It isn't my model of the engine, though.must be one made by someone else.
