DESIGN AND FABRICATION OF WOOD LATHE MACHINE

ABSTRACT

This write up outlines the design and fabrication of wood lathe machine. This type of lathe is capable of creating different wood designs using the cheapest available material and method.

To achieve functional and efficient wood lathe of this kind, we analyzed as well as synthesized the different possible design solutions and concepts.

The principle of turner is puts into consideration the case of its production, main finance and services, values durability, reliability and appearance of the machine.

Finally, the parts were assembled and the machine test run. To ensure the achievement of best performance, iterative procedures were carried out. The material, labour and overhead costs were determined to get the production cost of a prototype.
