Pole Lathe

I’ve had enough of strings, strands and loops for now. Here’s a pole lathe model I’m working on and more scenes to follow.

Here are the other scenes and updated skp. I don’t know if you notice, but somewhere I lost
a leaf of the strap hinge. I may copy it from another file and paste it back in (or not). You still
get the idea.


Okay, I couldn’t stand it any longer. I pasted the top leaf back in place and moved/copied to appropriate scenes.

maybe you need a pole to help you stand. :sunglasses:
(today I learned that this is called a pole lathe.)

Yeah, with a pole lathe you have only one foot on the ground and one working the treadle. You have to balance and work at the same time, a feat at 68 years old.
