KNOP record lathe + stereo cutterhead

DIY record lathe

Similar projects worth following
Hi, so I wanted a record lathe but did not have the money for one. So I made one. Then I wanted to buy a stereo cutterhead but could not afford one. So I made that too.

Hi I'll try to get as much information of my lathe and cutterhead on here. I'm still continuing to improve aspects of the machine and i'll try to document the build as much as possible.
