One of the most important tools for working with glass will be glassworking lathe. I decided to build one by myself, commercial solutions are too expensive or aren’t available.. It will consists of four ball bearings, two dc motors, one linear bearing, several aluminum profiles and some minor parts.. Synchronizing of the chucks will be done manually by setting the slave motor rpm according to master one. I hope it will work I don’t have needed skills to do it by one shaft or something like that..
200 rpm dc motors (5kg.cm-1)
Buying covered bearing wasn’t the best idea, it was very hard to rotate with it, really stiffly. This kind of bearing contains dense lubricant for all the lifetime of the bearing, so it mu I decided to remove the covering, and lubricate it with something thin – oil.
