Clockmaker’s or Watchmaker’s Bow Lathe Plans

Also called a Turn or Fiddle Lathe and after several years and numerous requests I finally am finishing them and they will be ready for delivery soon and you can purchase them now.  Order Here

I posted about the lathe earlier, but things came up and it went to the back burner.  I have finished the second drawing for the wedge version, see drawing below.  The other version is for threaded wooden thumbscrews, see drawing above.  The entire lathe is shop made of hardwood.

The plans are 11″ by 17″ and are full size.  Also included are instructions and a parts and cutting list.

The price is $15.00 plus $6.00 shipping to domestic U.S. locations.  There is an additional $10.00 charge for international shipping.

Thanks to everyone who encouraged me to finish this project, you know who you are.
