Lathe setup

The attached video shows my lathe setup and an overview of a pepper grinder being turned. The lathe steady is far from ideal but it only only cost $29. It did require a little wrangling to make it fit the bed of my lathe. I intend to make a larger steady out of plywood and use roller blade wheels. The lathe is under powered for 10 inch pepper grinders but I still managed to make it.  However in the best traditions working from home you make the best of what you have. It takes longer than I would like but luckily I enjoy turning. I filmed the entire thing on my iPhone 5 and uploaded it to YouTube. I haven't uploaded a YouTube video for while. There is now a basic video editor. This means that I was able to stitch together four short clips. Pretty basic but did the trick.   y
