Home Shop Machinists Podcast – Episode 9 – We Are Finished!

In this episode Max and Justin talk about finishing and both agree that they are terrible at actually finishing projects.  In fact, it is amazing that this podcast is still being recorded and not sitting on a shelf somewhere collecting dust waiting for completion.  It did actually sit for about a week until Justin managed to finish the editing!  In this episode:

    1. Three listeners?!? Thanks for dropping by Kevin. We will have to design a lathe on the podcast! I think we’ll debate for a few hours on roller bearings vs journal bearings :).


      1. And then there is the matter of spindle tapers. I mean do you really use a morse taper all that much or would an integral ER collet holder not be more useful in the home shop?

        I don’t own a lathe (yet) but I’ve been pondering a build for a while. The Gingery lathe is an interesting project but it assumes that you have absolutely no access to more than basic tools and materials. What would the middle ground between that and a commercially made lathe look like?
        For example I really like the idea of casting the machine body in place in your basement. You could still have a fairly substantial machine that wouldn’t fit the staircase if the machine body was cast in place from concrete or something like epoxy granite.
