Hanging a lathe on a French-cleat wall – Part II

In the last video, I got my new Aldi lathe out of its box and hung it on my French-cleat wall.

In this video, I’ll sort out a proper sliding mechanism to convert the vertical storage position into a horizontal working position.

This wasn’t easy thought – I nearly lost a finger in the process! 😉

But it all worked out, and I got to test drive the lathe in its new ‘permanent’ position.


Make-n-Do is the CONTACT Editor’s personal ‘playlist’ on the CONTACT YouTube Channel, where the philosophy is making do with the tools and materiel I have and making and doing as an escape from the computer (though, ironically, the video editing then ties me to the computer for almost as many hours as I spent Make-n-Do in the shed in the first place ? )
