Thread: Woodturning lathe project
I need custom desgined newel posts with a diameter of approx 100mm and length of approx 800mm.
Ideally, I'd prefer these posts to have two motise joints before they are cut to shape.
I've been in search for a cnc woodturning lathe but the prices are crazy!
Can any1 help?
This could be done on a cnc router with a 4 (rotary) axis. How many posts are you thinking of as it may be quicker just to turn them on a manual lathe.

Yeah, its possible to do this on a cnc r axis.
Well i need an initial order of 20 posts. Will it be possible to replicate these on a manual lathe?
Depends on the complexity of the item. Copy lathes are not uncommon and were designed specifically for work like this. have you got a design that we can see?The more I know, I know, I know the less. (John Owen)
Replicating these on a manual lathe can be done but you will need to find a very good turner. A copy lathe would be the way to go to get accurate copies. Any differences in the copies would be noticeable when the posts are close together.
