The video series explains many of the details as I build the lathe, and will make a great supplement to the plans if you haven't already seen it. The videos are below.


Here are some items you may want to purchase but not all are not required to build the lathe. The picture will link you to amazon where you can purchase the items.





Lathe Chuck (not required)










Morse Taper Adapter (Not required)











T-Track (Not required)








Pillow Block bearing (some type of bearing is required)
















Sample V-Belt. You could use this one, but I recommend you measure the distance between the motor and your lathe center before deciding on a belt size. It depends on your motor setup.














Your Pulleys can be purchased or made of wood. The sizes vary depending on your motor speed so I don't want to recommend a specific one.
