I'm hoping to make this for a school project and have little robotics experience. Is it possible to get a more details kit/item list? Thank you.
John, if you look closely you'll see that my wife is wearing a full face shield when the accident happened (as we always do while working in the "line of fire"). I'm also comfortable with the risk of wearing nitrile gloves while finishing a project on the lathe. I always reduce the belt tension so the project can slip if anything catches. Thanks for the concern.
I love this design idea, and even though I'm an expert woodturner, the simplicity is very appealing. We all like projects that can be completed quickly. You also take quite a bit of mystery out of segmented turning, which in itself is a fabulous art form. As new turners, however, I feel I must caution you about a coupe of safety issues. First, ALWAYS wear adequate face/eye protection. Regular glasses do it, and that accident your wife had with the piece breaking apart could have let to a VERY serious facial injury or worse. Full face shields are not that expensive and should be used whenever roughing out a piece, especially segmented ones. Second, please be extra careful when wearing gloves of any kind while woodturning. It only takes a second, and an almost invisible splinter of wood can pull your hand into and be grabbed by the wood. A terrible injury can easily occur. I recommend never using gloves while anywhere near a lathe.Otherwise, a very enjoyable video and project. Keep it up!
Oops! I should have proofed my own comment and post. I meant to write "...Regular glasses DON'T do it,..." Always wear a full face shield for this process!
I am surprised how clean this looks. Do you think it's possible to do that composite structure in a bigger scale like a half wood/half stone handrail?
A great project,I was thinking could this be modified for a solar tracker that could charge say phones etc .Is it a idea that could consider.I
this mechanical SETUP can also work for an antenna tracker for FPV RC plane or helicopter
Great project. I'm thinking of making one for the science museum where I volunteer. Can you give any more detail on the slip-ring arrangement you used? Did you buy or build?
