Lathe course run by Dave Seth - excellent

Big thanks to Dave for running the Lathe Course today. For those who are unaware, Dave is a very experienced machinist, a great asset to the space. Very informative and hands-on course - created the turning tools we used by sharpening and shaping them from tool-steel blanks, lathe set-up, several machining techniques and finally, case-hardening the finished work in the forge. If you missed it, you missed a lot.
Thanks Dave.



The hardening didn’t go so well. Apologies for that. We got our pieces too hot and developed scaling. I’ll have to practice for next time.

Oh, and it’s Seff, not Seth. :slight_smile:
