Turning of a
By Curtis Turner
Round Rock, Texas
I recently began learning how to turn metal! I have been interested in turning metal for some time. My first experience turning metal was on Roy Underhill's treadle lathe. That was a very limited introduction, however it was enough to pique my interest.
I am very fortunate to have a TechShop about 6 miles from my shop. This facility offers an amazing array of tools and equipment including several metal lathes.
