I never thought it would be Norm that got me to the turning forum but here I am with a question.
His show this weekend was about making a Cherry nightstand. It had turned legs and when he went to turn them he said something about using his new lathe. Now everyone makes fun of Norm’s million-dollar shop and this new toy will definitely add to that lament. Oh yea, the question… Did anyone see the show and can tell me who made the lathe? He didn’t mention the manufacturer and I couldn’t tell by looking. It was white with variable speed electronic control. I know that Delta is a sponsor but their equipment is blue not white. Or did they change the paint scheme?
Well, Norm's show before that one was on bowl turning, too bad you missed it. I have to check the tape, but the lathe used to use was the Delta 701 lathe, which has been discontinued. If I remember correctly, I thought he was using the new Delta Lathe. I will check the tape tonight, but I do think it is the Delta. It is a very nice lathe and about $1600-1800 or so.
I saw that episode also and it looked like his old lathe. This week he talked about his new lathe but didn’t say who made it. Most of the shots were from behind and I didn’t see a name or logo.
That is one thing I like about his show, he doesn’t sound like a commercial.
This is the new lathe on NYW. The only time I've seen a Oneway lathe on a show associated with "Norm" was the TOH episode where Steve went to Chicago to have some architectural moldings made from an old line maker. There was a sceen where a guy was turning small pulls on a Oneway 2436 - way overkill the pulls could be made on a Jet mini.
I think that Bill may have hit the bull’s eye on this one. :)
Although they filmed it from the back side so you could see Norm, the speed adjustment box looks like it might be the one. And because Delta is a “Proud Sponsor of The New Yankee Workshop” it is probably the one Bill shows.
Thanks for the help clearing this up for me. Now I’d better get out of here. I hear that this forum is addictive.
Soon Sonny will have to trade in his Jack D. for Ripple….:+
