A lathe is a machine tool which rotates the work piece on its axis to perform various operations such as cutting ,sanding, knurling, drilling or deformation with tools that are applied to the work piece to create an object which has symmetry about an axis of rotation . Lathes are used in woodturning, metalworking, metal spinning, Thermal spraying/ parts reclamation, and glass-working. The material can be held in place by either one or two centers, at least one of which can be moved horizontally to accommodate varying

(4) Tool rest :- The tool rest is similar to a mechanical arm with a metal guide bar to support the chisel or knife used for turning the work piece. It usually can be adjusted by sliding the length of the bed at its base, with an intermediate arm that can swing from a parallel to a perpendicular position in relation to the lathe bed, and the upper arm, which holds the actual tool rest bar.

Components Used * Sewing Machine motor * Speed controller pedal * Bolt with conned end + 2 nuts * 9/32” Socket for holding the work piece * Epoxy resin or fevicol * Wooden Base * Wooden work piece to be shaped * Shaping Tools Tool Used
Turning tools are generally made from three different types of steel, Carbon steel, High speed steel (HSS), and Powdered Metal. The harder the type of high speed steel used, the longer the edge will maintain sharpness. Powdered steel is even harder than HSS, but takes more effort to obtain an edge as sharp as HSS, just as HSS is harder to get as sharp as Carbon Steel . woodworking tools require more frequent sharpening, because the wood passes at a great speed. To maintain a clean cut, the sharpness of the tools edge must be maintained. The sharpening process requires either skill of the craftsman, or one of the many available sharpening jigs, which facilitate maintaining a specific bevel on the tool. High speed steel is not prone to overheating whereas carbon steel overheat
