This is a machine that is made out of a Black Decker drill. It has a 40" oak bed. It has a speed control and a foot switch. I used it for doing irish linen wraps. It has a live center on the tailstock. As you can see it is a simple machine. It did what it was made for and had the speed to press the wraps. I never had to replace anything on this simple lathe. I did have to use ear plugs when pressing the wraps as it is a little loud. The linen sat below the lathe on a bracket connected to the table. I also had a spring connected to the bracket to put tension on the thread if I had to stop before I was done with the wrap. If I had to wait on someone or answer the phone.
