In Topic: Horizontal Plaster Lathe

I came across a very brief discription of a horizontal plaster lathe in Leon Nigrosh book "Claywork". Is anyone familiar with these? I'm looking for plans to build a homemade one-they look fairy simple in the photo. But I can't find anything on them online when I did a google search. Can anyone help me out?

Try a search for "plaster turning" I think that is what you are refering to.
I have also cast blocks and then turned them on my wood lathe.

The flexible aluminum dryer vent product at the box stores works well.

If anyone is interested I would be glad to post some pics of the DIY vent system I made for my used Skutt after looking at what they (and other manufacturers) sell for over $400.

good luck, all


I would be interested in seeing what you did.

wipe oil on the residue, leave for a minute or two and wipe off. Repeat if still tacky.
