Custom Rose Engine & Ornamental Lathe
Hand crank with hickory handle and turned aluminum idle sheaves or pulleys

The hand crank shaft has been heated and bend and the end drilled and tapped for the handle retaining screw.   The hickory handle has a retaining washer behind the plug on the outside end.   The freely rotating hickory handle is finished with wax.   The aluminum ball bearing sheaves (pulleys) redirect the cranking force so it will not effect the spindle head action.   There is a temporary bracket for the round belt tension sheave (pulley) in the back.

The aluminum sheves and pulley have a flame type Rose Engine Ornamentation.
