  1. Gotta love the sound of a lathe…

  2. Not used the idea of zeroing the scale before. Great idea. My concern is my
    verniers are not as good as yours and sometimes have a mind of there own !

  3. Zeroing is the best function of electronic measuring tools, takes all the
    maths out..

  4. Its a great idea and i will be using it tomorrow. thanks

  5. use metric system and you’ll be happy 🙂

  6. oh yea. every time i try turning a shaft like you turned as soon as i hit
    the steel with the blade the steel will start moving around even though its
    tight in the chuck

  22. Excellent, simple video that shows a lot to a beginner without over
    complications. Will be putting this series on my phone as a reference for
    when my new lathe arrives. Think I’ll slip the crocks though. Thanks to
    myfordboy for helping newbies.

  23. Thanks for the tips on how to use caliper. I’ve never seen them used that
    way before.

  24. Gerhard Baumgartner

    Sehr gut erklärt! Danke!

  25. You should never use a digital vernier for measuring diameters as they are
    not accurate enough , always use a micrometer

  26. Sony William
