Some individuals like to defy convention, and they decide to cobble together a system to get their shop tools working correctly — and a few folks, like reader Lungofish, do it with sufficient panache to make the rest of us look bad.
Lungofish constructed his slick lathe control to look clean and professional — at first glance it looks store-bought. In fact, Lungofish fabricated both the box and the controls on it, including the knob in the upper left which was turned on the lathe that it now controls.
In case some of you missed it, that’s what we around the shop call style. Bragging rights today fall firmly in Lungofish’s corner.
