MDF Rose Engine Lathe Kit 2.0


In 2007, Jon Magill designed the MDF rose engine lathe. He stopped making that kit, and we are happy to announce that we will soon be making them available again.

We are hoping to have these ready by December, 2020, and are putting out this early notice to gage the interest so we get enough made. We don't have the prices worked out yet, and we are certainly not looking for commitments or any payments at this time. We are simply looking to judge the interest. (And if you know which options you are interested in, let us know that also.)
