34 Choosing and Buying a Lathe 3 Setting Up a Lathe S etting up a lathe involves more than just shoehorning the machine into an available space in the workshop. You need to consider work­ flow, machine placement, chip removal, ventilation, electrical service, lighting, and tool storage. Workflow The lathe should be placed in such a way that work can flow naturally to and from other machines in the shop (see the illustration on p. 36). Billets for spindle turning are often jointed and planed square.

4 Holding the Work N oW that you have your lathe set up and running, it's time to think about turning something. But first you need a way to hold the work in the lathe. I've always maintained that I can turn any­ thing, if given a way to mount it in my lathe. This is where chucking comes in. Technically, a chuck is any device that holds work in the lathe. It can be a set of centers, a faceplate, an elaborately manufactured jaw­ type chuck, or a simple shopmade glue block. Understanding the difference between spindle turning and faceplate turning is central to the concept of chucking.

Based on the Delta 46-700, this Jet lathe is a good small lathe that offers good swing and between-center distances with a swing head for occasional larger faceplate work. Entry-Level Lathes 29 Most entry-level lathes come with l/z -hp motors, although the motors of lathes made in Asia are often a bit optimistic in their power ratings. You can easily replace a motor when the original fails. Typically these lathes come with three or four speeds, which are changed by switching belts, but some entry-level machines have variable speed by variable-width sheaves.
