Counter shaft / lay shaft
#1
Started making the lay shaft for my lathe today, yes the cone pully is made of wood. If it's bad form posting pics of wood on a metal working forum please accept my humblist apology. Big Grin It's a good hard wood likley Beech and each secition has been turned individually and will be bonded together with the grain a 90deg to each other.
The shaft is 25mm silver steel and a 203mm dia picador pulley.
Hopefully the pillow block bearings will arrive tomorrow and I'll start making the frame to mount the shaft on, I'm making it from IPE wood as a mock up first as I have some spare and it's harder than nails so will be plenty strong enough.
