  1. Nice video, I liked the part about equal adjusting of the hammers and the table you made for holding the hammers

    1. Hi Michael, thank you for the comments. Understanding those subtle adjustments really makes it alot easier to deal with when having problems. Have a good day.

  2. Very good information and quality video. I can see all sort of uses for the lathe tables that William constructed.

  3. Terrific video and the information is presented so well. It’s like I am in the room with you William. I look forward to seeing you in the next video. Thank you for the great job, Leslie

  4. A well done session. Informative, well explained and you know that you will learn something from it. I liked the tool/workpiece rests you made for lathe work.
