Well, I have some not so good news-my lathe is broken. The on-off switch isn't working and I haven't been able to find a replacement part for it. It seems that Delta no longer makes replacement switches for my lathe-their website says it's obsolete. So for the time being, I'm unable to turn wood.
The lathe that I own is the Delta Midi Lathe, model 46-460. If you have a suggestion as to how to work around this problem or if you know of a supplier who can sell me a switch, please send me note via the comments section below.
This is really the pits and I'm relieved that I don't have any pending bowl orders right now.
I am going to be continuing the blog and I'll be working on other non-wood turning projects that I've needed to do so I'll still be here doing projects in the wood shop.
So stay tuned-as always there's another project just over the horizon and we'll all still create objects out of wood together.
