Mike Rehmus has put together a professional quality video that answers virtually all the questions first time users have about setting up and using a Sherline lathe. The 3-1/2 hour video takes you from mounting the machine to a board to aligning the headstock. Mike uses the example of turning a test bar to check for straightness. He then goes through facing and boring, making a tight-fitting hole for the test bar as a sample job. You also get to see how he goes about using a micrometer and caliper to measure the results as he goes along. Setting the height of the cutting tool, holding the workpiece, and how to grind a lathe tool are covered as well. Mike also covers backlash and how to deal with it, how to disassemble and clean a chuck, demonstrating handwheel technique, and how to use the optional adjustable zero handwheels.
