They don't look very Victorian.

Nope, made during the reign of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Besides they won't be seen as they are going under the lathe cradle.
All will become clear, I promise.

I had a bonkers idea about how you could lift your lathe. I'll tell you tomorrow, but it's probably too daft to be practical.

Pneumatic or hydraulic ram?

Counter weights?

Anti-gravity paint?

One of those ideas is close. Now I just have to invent the anti-gravity paint.

I have already done that. The problem was keeping it in the tin once I opened the lid.
Anyway, the best way to raise the lathe is with a measured amount of dynamite.
And the white objects in Rimmells photo are wheels (taken off his Chad Valley Wooden train suitable for children of 3 and over)
