This is the original incarnation of the DML24 from Record Power. It’s a three-speed wood turning lathe made around 1997 and is about as basic as a lathe gets.
I recently began wood turning having acquired and restored a ‘90s vintage Record DML-24 lathe. One of my first projects was, rather ambitiously, a tulip bowl which presented my first real challenge.
This instalment of the Woodworking Blind series will cover tips and techniques for the safe and successful operation of saws. This is not a definitive guide to the use of every saw, as there are plenty of general tutorials freely available governing the use of every type of saw imaginable.
In the second instalment in the Woodworking Blind series, we will discuss measurement and marking. The age-old adage “measure twice, cut once” is especially applicable when you have no sight, and I would vehemently encourage you take this to heart from the get-go.
This series has been a long time coming. I’m often asked how I’m able to undertake projects like those here with no sight.
A simple circuit to optimise the phase angle of an AC synchronous turntable motor, thereby reducing noise and vibration. Including PCB files.
Software version 2.5 with a new library brings a significant speed increase and far better accuracy.

a brief tutorial covering the construction of a talking scale based on a 328-based Arduino, an HX711 module and the Talkie speech synthesis library.
As a long time Jim Steinman and Meat Loaf fan I couldn’t have been more excited when a Bat Out of Hell musical finally became a reality. Having Seen The Show and been introduced to its community of fans, I became inspired by the dedication of the bat fans and their contributions to the bat community, including……
