Lathe work

The picture in the workshop is of me using the lathe to prepare a wooden wheel for a Fordson Roadless conversion for Graham Hooper.

It is important for me to get the model looking proportionally correct, which often means a prototype getting ‘binned’ as it becomes obvious that it just looks wrong. This means that the models are not necessarily to scale – looks are everything here.
