Instructions - Lathe
Over the last few months I’ve had a long-running MOC project designing and building machine tools to go in my engine maintenance shed. Both the machines and the shed itself warrant a post of their own, but I’ve been promising to release instructions for some of the models for ages.
I’ve been designing some decals for a buddy of mine and with Stud.io open, I had a bit of free time today to sit down and take a look at recreating a model digitally. I’m a complete luddite when it comes to digital building but hats off to the Stud.io dev team; aside from a few UX issues the process was pretty straightforward.
This lathe was the first model I built to go in the shed and as with most of my designs, it’s a hodge-podge of inspiration from various sources. Images are below, or you can download a PDF of the instructions.
Now that I’ve got the hang of Stud.io, I’ll probably re-work the truck from a couple of days ago. Eventually I’ll release instructions for the rest of the machine tools too, but some are a lot more fiddly than the lathe, or use unavailable parts. If anyone knows how to separate a steering wheel column, please let me know!
