Default Re: Large inductor lathe wound to a spec?

If my lathe were larger I’d happily have a try.

The workpiece would need accurate setting up between centres rather than in a chuck but that’s not too difficult a task. With the changewheels I have, cutting the required groove is possible. Making a tool to cut a half-round groove isn’t too hard.

Thinking further, if you don’t get an offer from someone with a big lathe, there may be a way that I can set it up on my Drummond Roundbed, they are clever little machines!
