Arbortech Art

jbt0229

Arbortechs come in a couple of different models. The one I most covet costs around £120 for the blade, so I make do with the baby attachment which I needed first and bought some years ago. This one fits onto a standard angle grinder by means of a plastic housing and a wheel which drives the cutting blade by means of a little rubber band.

The idea is you turn your item and either stop the lathe or start carving at it while it rotates. jbt0229A face shield is a necessity, as are ear muffs and a strong set of arms to hold the dancing apparatus steady enough to make it do what you want it to do.

Sunday is the day when I turn for pleasure - the rest of the week is for production work.

Here is a 'Playtime Platter'

I was pleased with this one.
