  • Hello again, my friends, Today I'll show my latest project,

  • which I've been modeling and developing on SketchUp for a couple of months.

  • It's a lathe made completely with birch plywood.

  • As you can see, I've also attached a disc sander on the left side to take advantage

  • of the motor's rotation.

  • This is the disc sander's stand, which can be tilted up to 45º,

  • which will definitely come in handy sometimes!

  • As always, I've tried to develop a design

  • that would be economic and simple to build.

  • Let's take a look at how to make it.

  • First we cut all the pieces according to the cutting list.

  • We apply glue on these three pieces that will function as base for the lathe.

  • First I place a couple of screws so that the pieces won't move when fastening them .

  • due to the viscosity of the glue

  • We then finish assembling all the system that

  • will serve as base for the lathe.

  • Now I'll attach these two pieces with glue

  • to achieve greater thickness.

  • This is the part where I'll insert the bearings that will

  • serve as rotation axis.

  • Once dry, we create a place for the bearings

  • with an adjustable bit.

  • I will drill the hole at low RPMs, advancing slowly to avoid burning

  • the wood and the bit.

  • I make a rebate for the on and off switches,

  • and I finish machining and assembling the rest of the pieces.

  • Now I'll screw the set to the base. Having done that, I apply a couple of coats of varnish

  • now that it's easy, and while it's drying, I'll cut the six pulleys: three for the motor

  • and three for the lathe.

  • These are the motor pulleys.

  • I've drilled holes in them with the exact diameter of the motor shaft.

  • As you can see in the video,

  • the shaft has a slanted part that sticks out that will prevent the pulleys from moving

  • backwards, and at the same time will provide traction.

  • After machining the pulleys, we insert them in the shaft being careful not to hit them

  • too hard to avoid damaging the motor.

  • I'll place this screw on the front.

  • Now I will prepare the base for the motor,

  • and screw it in its place.

  • Now it's time to lathe the pulleys.

  • I will start with the widest one.

  • Now I'll lathe the groove for the belt.

  • I'll try it little by little to adjust it correctly.

  • We put the bearings in place and attach the threaded rod.

  • I place the lathe's pulleys and glue them together.

  • Before we move on, I insert the belt. I place all the nuts and washers, check the measurements,

  • and now I can fasten and screw everything in place.

  • Now I'll machine the lathe's pulleys attaching them to the motor, and I'll take the chance

  • to see if everything is working correctly.

  • These pulleys must be of the same diameter

  • as their motor counterparts so that we canchange between them without having to move the motor.

  • Using an angle grinder I sharpen the threaded rod

  • and cut this piece that I will use for the lathe's tailstock.

  • I do the same again on this end,

  • and that's all for today!

  • I'll upload the next part as soon as possible.

  • I hope you like it, and see you next time!

Hello again, my friends, Today I'll show my latest project,
