It’s a hair-raising process starting an irregular blank. The piece can bash loose, and if you’re impatient it can flip the chisel out of your hands. Which is why lathes near a wall are always at an angle, not parallel, to it.

Cool.

Have you heard about the ex-Apple engineer (he was responsible for the first Apple printer) that wanted to make a giant model layout? He was aiming for the largest in the world and spent an absolute fortune accumulating the models, and then died suddenly.

He apparently left 5 or 6 storage units packed to the rafters with the stuff and the family finally got sick of dealing with it so the last one they put up for auction and it sold, sight unseen, to a guy that buys abandoned lockers and makes videos about what he finds - FOR ONE DOLLAR. He was absolutely astounded when he opened it up and found hundreds of thousands of dollars of model trains, planes, firetrucks, etc. etc. etc. It took him months to go through it all.

This is the first video on that locker. I think there was about 10 or 11 in the series.

We had to build one of these for squirt's school project, but ours was string and cardboard. This is...a little more extreme.

My buddy had an old RX7 he used to race with a Wankel rotary engine. We called it the hamster.
