>I picked up this tredal lathe last week. some one hooked it up to a moter and I want to put it back as a treddal. and now I'm wondering what speeds I need to make it run at? If I have some idea at what is the highest speed I should shoot for I can figure out what size pully to put at the bottom. it is only an 8X24 lathe and I will probably only use it for chisel handles and the such maybe a pen or two if I can get a mandril to fit it. How about giving me some ideas on what to do?
