Lathe project completed :)

Recommended Posts

Before Christmas my friend asked me to make some aluminium knobs in the style of the stereo (as seen on the spaceship) from the Guardians Of The Galaxy. There are six in total & he provided plans with dimensions to work from. So amongst other projects I've been working on these. It's been quite a steep learning curve & has involved some milling as well as turning on the lathe. There haven't been (that m)any disasters & I've enjoyed making them & seeing the improvement  as I've gone on. I finished the last one today & here they are in all their glory :thumbs_up:

very nice, what lathe/mill have you got?

It's a Warco mini-lathe with 80mm chuck. Not sure it's made anymore but it seems a decent little machine to me. My friend has a Myford ML7 lathe which I'd kill for :thumbs_up:

Thanks Honour :thumbs_up: You might want to have a look at the raffle Roy has just started on my behalf (with all proceeds going towards the forum running costs) :notworthy:

To Smiths Mad - I made them for a friend who intends to put them on a gaming PC which is in the style of a cassette player on a spaceship that's featured in The Guardians Of The Galaxy films (so they're sort of going on an amplifier). Having said all that they've been made for a while & I've nothing from my friend for a while either......... :huh:
