'Peeler' Logs are debarked, then if they're hardwood logs, they're soaked in hot water until they get soft. Then, for the most common type of veneer - 'rotary veneer' - the log is mounted onto a large veneer lathe. The lathe is equipped with a knive carriage that includes a 'nose bar', which limits the depth of cut. The entire log is peeled in a large sheet - like unrolling toilet paper. For other types of veneer the concept is similar, except the log is mounted on a large machine that moves up and down, taking 'slices' of the log. This is called flitch cut, and results in a more natural looking veneer. Also, sequential cuts can make up a 'book' of veneers which, when matched in different ways, make symetrical patterns.

Try the manufacturer's site at http://www.general.ca. They should be able to help.
It's really quite easy to break a coping saw accidentaly by putting too much pressure on the blade or moving it the wrong way. Luckily, blades are cheap.
you firt want to a cut a slit on a dinkle and then fart in a can, i think thats what you do maybe or you can just do, if you know what i mean
carriage comprises of parts-saddle and apron.
Two types of jaws are using in lathe chuck for work holding, hard jaws and Soft jaws. Suitable steel of tensile strength not less than 400 MPa with gripping portion hardened and tempered to a hardness between 54 to 62 HRC and the remaining portion to a hardness of 28 HRC Min. Normally ISO/TC 17/SC 4 - Heat treatable and alloy steels are using for Hard Jaws. Soft jaws will be of free cutting non-alloy steels.
A cylindrical job can be done by using a lot of turing operations. A lathe turning operation is done using a machinery. There are many different parts to a turning tool. Some examples of a turning tool are left-hand turning tool and the right hand turning tool.
Face Plate is used on Lathe machine. It is just like lathe chuck. irregular shape job clamp on face plate by clamps, bolts.
All gearboxes work the same way: there is a gear on the motor, a gear on the thing you're trying to drive, and sometimes a set of gears between the two. The ratio between the gears, plus the RPM of the motor, determines the speed of the workpiece. If the gear on the motor is larger than the gear on the workpiece the RPM of the workpiece will be higher than the speed of the motor. If the workpiece's gear is larger, the workpiece will turn slower than the motor. Given that, though, I've never seen a gearbox on a wood lathe. Wood lathes use belt drive for two reasons, the most important being safety--if you get a catch, a workpiece on a belt driven lathe won't damage you as badly as a workpiece on a gear-driven lathe. Also, belt drive won't feed vibration from the workpiece back into the motor and damage the bearings. Gear drive is used on metal lathes.
Using geared head for gear box driven or stepped pulley if belt driven
One advantage of a lathe machine is that it can perform very detailed and intricate designs. One disadvantage of a lathe machine is that these machines are more expensive than other types of machines used to produce this type of work.
I have had good luck at finding unpainted nutcrackers @ Zims crafts I only wish I could find another venue. * http://www.goldencockerel.com/shoprussian.asp?object=store&id=300000 * http://www.folkartlife.com/articles/paintnutcrackers.shtml
Woodworking lathes can be purchased from various retailers both instore and online. They are available at Woodcraft, Busy Bee Tools, and can also be found at Amazon or eBay. Reviews of different lathes can be viewed at Overstock.
I use a lathe to machine a new shaft from steel.
The manual for this lathe is online with a date of 1946.This lathe was one of the early contenders in the Post-War home shop boom.
There are various ways for a lathe to hold its workpiece.
