Hello everyone ray again today like to show you the lathe that are built when i was 16 years old as third with this plan by Carlyle Lynch excellent plan i’ll make those available to anyone who’s interested and built this eightfoot beast lathe it had 68 inches between centers and a nineteen inch swing and I decided to test that full capacity by gluing up a blank of western red cedar it weighed about 400 pounds and it was a beauty of a blank. blank was so big that.
I had to use the bed of the lathe as a tool rest my toolrest would not fit under there and as you can see it actually worked out quite well once I got the diameter down I was able to slip the tool rest back on everything use it you can see here a black belt on the left side of the blank and here at the motor the diameter was such that I had to wrap the belt around the blank itself to get the speeds slow enough to actually turn this beast so fast forward twentyfive.
Years later and the lathe which i no longer have i sold it last year still is a beautiful functioning piece of machinery it was such an excellent machine I was able to sell it to another owner and now they are enjoying the use of this late I think you all for watching I appreciated please don’t forget to subscribe and anyone that’s interested you can find the link to the plan in the description of this tutorial.
How To Make a FLOATING HOT TUB
Our previous hot tub was a tiny bit on the small side We need a real hot tub We’re going to make a proper hot tub down here We’re not making a regular hot tub because Andrew can’t make anything regular The project this weekend is an amphibious hot tub I’m Andrew. I’m Kevin.
Welcome to brojects! We’ll cut the top section off to resemble a hot tub allowing us to enjoy the lake views when in the tub We’ll then surround the fiberglass tub with a wood frame to add strength and incase it in Cedar in order to keep this hot tub from sinking we’re going to need a lot of flotation so we’re gonna to build two outriggers on either side and fill them with foam.
And in addition to flotation our outriggers will house a storage compartment for an ice bucket and drink holders as well as a marine battery to power the outboard trolling motor The hot tub water will be heated a wood fire heater positioned on the end of the dock Once the tub is up to temperature We’ll detach and cruise the lake So I’m just finishing up the framing here for the tub.
It’s coming together slowly but surely these little guys are gonna receive our outrigger two by fours.they’re going to slot basically right into there this thing is getting mighty heavy I can’t even really lift it so we’re going to run into weight problems like we always do This thing weighs a ton! I cannot believe how heavy it is! I don’t know how we’re gonna get it in and out of the water.
It might be a landbased floating hot tub The outriggers are coming along alright. I finished up the box here and we’re going to put in our cups Pour it with the foam and see how it goes What do you think? Cup holder, cup holder, wine.battery box.
Will have to run the wire from the battery probably two feet.and we’ll get our motor What’s the tin foil for? I don’t know how much splatter we’re gunna get with this foam These cups.they will accept a beer bottle, a wine glass.
Okay, well lets pour the foam This project is all about the foam, because that’s whats going to make it float the hardest thing about working with foam is the unpredictability Its expanding a bit It sounds like our cups getting crushed though This is going to be the carrying cart for the hot tub.
I’ve been struggling a little bit with the weight of this hot tub how are we going to move it around and whatnot this is going to help us launch our hot tub into the water its a simple little frame couple wheels on either corner but I think it’ll do the trick I like it when I come up with ideas and you build them.
