Centre lathe and turning techniques

This chapter is concerned with centre lathes. There are a number of guards on a lathe; some of these are installed to prevent you coming into contact with the transmission components such as gears and belts. These only have to be removed for maintenance and repairs and, apart from making sure they are in place, you should not have to concern yourself with them. In addition, there are two guards that do concern you.
