Could anyone with a home lathe that has photos of their home made heli tools please point me to their gallery, I'd love to see what's out there.

Not mine( I wish ) , but Helicopter John's gallery, you'll find some interesting homemade heli parts and his home machine workshop.

I saw one at the Toronto HobbyShow Unimat Lathe it's compact and fits right on the table top.

What sort of tools do you want to see? I usually make heli tools as needed.

How about lathe tools?


Do you know the difference between left and right hand tools?
Did you know that you can use inexpensive end mills that have chipped teeth as boring tools?
Do you want to see the standard ground tools like turning/facing tools, cutoff tools, grooving tools, threading tools?

I'm not sure that the Taig can thread like the Sherline can (if you want to call what Sherline does as threading, ask me how I know.)
