Rosettes

Product

Description

Price

A complete set of Rosettes that are shipped with each Lindow Rose Engine
$325
A series of 5 different shaped oval designs (with spacers)
$135
A set of 5 rosettes with various sine wave counts
$135
Set of 6 engine turning rosettes, which include 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, and 96. They are low amplitude "C" or negative profile style rosettes specifically designed for engine turning or guilloche work and are to be used with the Engine Turning Tool Holder. Used with various rubbers these rosettes can accomplish "C", "D", and "~" sine wave shapes to produce patterns such as barleycorns, basket weaves, moire's, drapes, and a myriad of others.
$135
The PP or Puffy Polygon rosettes are made to create geometric designs with 3, 4, 5, 6, and 8 sides. The 3 sided rosette will approximate a triangle inside a 1.75" circle whereas the rest will create their respective polygon inside of a 2" circle. The "D" rosettes are the mechanical opposites of the "PP" set and amongst other things the three (or trefoil) rosette can be used to create Gorst DuPlessis's "Triple Finial." Some have used the four sided rosette to create a four bladed finial as well.
$150
These rosettes are designed to give moderate amplitudes in 6, 8, 10, 18, and 24 bumps. The "C" shaped rosettes (on the bottom) can be used to create the "C" shape, "D" shape, and Sine Wave depending on the rubber used. The lower counts in the "C" rosettes have a polygon shape but function like a "C" rosette with a lower amplitude.

Chucks

Product

Description

Price

The straightline chuck allows for a wide variety of setup options including the dome/pencil chuck, the index head mounted flat, and soon an oblique attachment for the index head that will not only work with the straight line chuck but also the double eccentric chuck.  On top of the long list of designs typically associated with the straightline chuck,  it can also produce designs much like those associated with a reciprocator. 

This is the complete set up for the straight line chuck.  It includes the saddle and the bed, but one may also want to add the index head which is not included. 

$500

 

This is the straight line chuck kit for the modular chuck system. If one already owns the dome chuck/double eccentric chuck this is all that is needed to be able to set up the straight line chuck.
$250

 

The dome chuck allows domes and hemispheres to be shaped on the rose engine. In addition, a double eccentric chuck is included in this package.
$775

The riser block allows 2 1/2" of diameter to be added to a piece being turned with the dome chuck.  If the tailstock is necessary another riser can also be used to raise it to the same level.

$65
This extra dovetail slide allows you to place the dome chuck on top of the double eccentric chuck allowing for both concave and convex patterns to be cut not only on the tops of objects but also on the sides. 
$200
The leveling or truing chuck is the traditional way of compensating for uneven materials or inaccuracies in work holding systems when moving from machine to machine. 
$275
The paper or Tympan chuck is made to hold a standard 4"x6" file card. The spring loaded penholder is 9/16" square so as to fit in the traditional toolbox as well as the modern tool holders and employs a standard Parker style ballpoint refill. The paper chuck is invaluable in understanding the effects of different rubbers on different rosettes as well as making templates for the setting up the dome chuck.
$225
Face Plate $50
These bottle stopper chucks fit a 1"-8 spindle and a ¾"-16 spindle (Sherline style) respectively and offer a 3/8"-16 thread to match most bottle stopper blanks on the business end. Having gotten frustrated by the low cost, low quality options available on the current market we had these made in the United States. The ¾"-16 model is specifically designed to fit the Sherline index head we use on our dome and double eccentric chucks as well as Sherline lathes. They not only work well for mounting bottle stopper blanks but for other difficult smaller pieces that require cutting tool clearance at the rear.
$25 each
The Index Head Face Plate was originally designed to allow the Index Head from the Dome Chuck to be mounted on the spindle for phasing. While it still may be used for this application, especially in a special set up such as repeated multi start threads, it is now used more for mounting the Paper Chuck and Pen Holder. It may also be used as an interchangeable wax chuck holder. It threads onto a 1"-8 spindle.

Cutting Frames

Product

Description

Price

This is a larger version of the ECF of Fred Armbruster's design that we have produced for years. It can reach to 3" in diameter and employ cutters of 1/8", 3/16", and 1/4". It comes standard with a short and long tool holding block in each of these sizes. The larger tool has the advantage of mass and produces less tool chatter; however, it does not replace the smaller tool for smaller work. While larger and more stable the tool must be well balanced. This can be quickly obtained with some practice. The extra tool holders are used to accomplish balance. It's also not recommended to run this tool at speeds over 1500 RPM's. It comes standard with an 8MM collet compatible shank but other sizes can be made upon request for a nominal cost.
$275
This drilling frame uses ER 16 collets, five of which are included which will accommodate 1/8", 3/16", ¼", 5/16", and 3/8". The spindle can be shortened or extended in the bearings by loosening the shaft collars and sliding it to a new position in order to allow for reaching into tighter spots. The aluminum bearing block mounts into a typical tool quick change tool holder and features non-contact, sealed bearings that deliver a freer running and cooler operation. Also included is an eccentric cutter of Fred Armbruster's design with a 60 degree carbide cutter (other angles available). The cutting frame accepts 1/8" diameter cutters. The set also has one 3/16" fly cutter that is useful as an internal cutting frame and for thread cutting.

The individual components are also available and priced upon application.
$600
The Eccentric Cutting Head allows you to make off-center designs like barleycorns, pineapple designs and more that you've seen described in the famous OT books.
$185
The Universal Cutting Frame is a versatile tool because it can be used at any angle from vertical to horizontal.  This tool requires the use of an overhead drive which gives smooth and quiet operation
$385

Hardinge Mount
This tool allows the Hardinge cross slide to be quickly and accurately mounted to a mini lathe such as the mini-Jet or Rikon.
The tool consists of a section of dovetail, which has location studs on the bottom that ride up against the back rail of the lathe bed. It's locked down by means of a cam, which is tightened by a hex wrench. Once attached to the lathe the entire dovetail can be slid up and down the length of the lathe bed without the removal of the Hardinge cross slide. The Hardinge slide can also be adjusted back and forth approximately 2". With this mount projects can be accurately turned, faced, and bored in a manner that allows for more precise chucking and therefore better repeatability when doing ornamental turning. Metal turning tools are used to cut the wood.

$185

New Rose Engine Product
Auxiliary Rosette Holder
The auxiliary rosette holder mounts to the outboard end of the spindle shaft and allows for one or two rosettes to be quickly added and changed. It is phased by means of a 120 count numbered worm wheel with a quick release for large phase changes. It also includes a rubber holder tower and clamp as well as an extendable holder for the rubber, which brings greater versatility to positioning. With this tool two rosettes can be used simultaneously and phased independently which exponentially increases the design opportunities.
It will also be the indexer/gear holder for the spiral attachment, which will be available soon as well as other options which are to come.

$1250

New Rose Engine Product
MT2 Spindle
A hollow Headstock spindle with #2 Morse Taper, draw bar, and 1"-8 adapter, 18" long. The Morse Taper 2 (MT2) spindle is made from a case hardened piece of tubing. The idea was disseminated by Fred Armbruster after he employed it to achieve 5C collet capacity on his MKII lathe. The case hardening provides a hardened OD and an ID that allows for machining giving the durability of a hardened shaft along with the accuracy and dependability of MT2 collets and fixtures, as well as the option of the ubiquitous 1"-8 thread. It not only allows for increased accuracy it also provides a platform for special holding fixtures that can be moved from lathe to lathe more accurately. It comes with a draw bar and a MT2 to 1"-8 adapter. The drawbar is made to work with standard MT2 collets.

Note: For lathes before #70 the barrel must be returned to have new bushings fitted as the new spindle is .0005" (half thou) smaller. A $50 charge will be added for this.

$300

New Rose Engine Product
Curvilinear Slide
The curvilinear slide does far more than can be described quickly. It is a slide rest unit that replaces the top slide of a Hardinge cross slide. It has an additional traverse slide that is devoid the lead screw allowing it to slide in and out by means of a spring while it follows an interchangeable template. It can produce any shape within its range. It also has an auto advance with tops allowing for long run set ups to operate without operator assistance stopping before it interferes with the chuck or other parts that do not need to be cut. It will also serve as part number two of three that will constitute the spiral chuck. It comes with the pulleys and belts for doing both internal and external cuts.

$2300

New Rose Engine Product
Extra set of pulleys
An extra set of jockey pulleys for the curvilinear slide is necessary for doing internal work. Along with the set of pulleys a longer belt is needed as well. All curvilinear slides after the initial offering will come with these pulleys as standard.

$50

New Rose Engine Product
'G' Pattern Curvilinear
These curvilinear slide rest patterns were suggested by a prominent turner. They have a high amplitude that lends itself well to robust patterns. In many cases only a portion of a pattern gets used and sometimes two patterns get used simultaneously. These lend themselves well to such situations. They are made from steel with edges polished to a fine shine.

$100

New Rose Engine Product
'C' Pattern Curvilinear
With a longer length than the "G" style these curvilinear patterns are made for general use. They have a versatile cross section of concave, convex, and sine curve shapes in varied amplitudes for broad application.

$150

New Rose Engine Product
'H' Pattern Curvilinear
The "H" stands for "Handles." The patterns have lower amplitudes that lend themselves well to making handles for all sorts of implements such as screw drivers and chisels. They are specifically designed to go along with the ice cream scoop handles described in the instructions for the Lindow Curvilinear Apparatus.

$100

New Rose Engine Product
Evans style Goniostat
The Evans style Goniostat is made to produce round faces on cutting tools with a lap. It is suitable for round cutters in 1/8", 3/16", and ¼" in both carbide and high speed steel. To use the opposite end the bar with the brass ball is simply turned around. There is a bushing included to fit 1/8" rounds on the 3/16" side. It is a nice companion to the Goniostat available from Peter Gerstel.

$125

New Rose Engine Product
Pen Mandrel System
The pen mandrel system consists of a holder and mandrels. The holder fits into a MT1 spindle which is used in the Sherline headstocks and has also been placed into the middle of the Lindow Rose Engine MT2 non-flanged adapter (if yours does not have the MT1 please call for an exchange with one that does). The mandrels are available in sizes for .368", .382", .402", .410", .485" pen tube diameters. Other sizes will be available in the future. The mandrels have at one end a ½" diameter which fits into the holder and is secured by means of a screw with a tapered head. This tapered head expands the slotted section of the mandrel and also has a center drilled end so as to be able to be held with a tailstock. The mandrel can also be used in a ½" collet by cinching the screw down with a ¼"-20 nut. A screw is included for use with the Sherline index head used on many LRE accessories. The mandrels can be purchased individually or in sets and more sizes will be added as requests are received. They are labeled for both the diameter of the mandrel and the diameter of the pen tube.

'V' Belt Conversion
The 'V' Belt offers a more positive drive system that virtually eliminates the 'ski -jump' effect so often felt when taking a relatively pointed rubber over the top of a sharp peak on a rosette. It also reduces belt slippage. It comes with the necessary pulley and the tensioner/adjusters that mount to the bottom of the table. It is made specifically to fit on the steel base. The price includes two tensioner rollers, two belts, and two cast iron pulleys. This option is included in all new machines that are purchased with the steel base.

$250

Aluminum Tool Holder Mount
These aluminum mounting blocks have the dovetail that matches the Aloris and Phase II tool post typically used on rose engines. They are for storing cutting frames and tools when not in use. They can be attached to a wall, cabinet, or the machine itself to keep the tools out of the way but with quick access.

$12.50

New Rose Engine Product
Tool Holder with Brass Tipped Screws
Having tired of getting Asian tool holders that were not held to tolerance and having to spend $10 per unit after that for brass screws so as to not mar the finish on the cutting frame and then open the slot up to 9/16" we decided to make our own tool holders. These tool holders are made of steel with a black oxide finish and manufactured in the USA. They will fit the small Aloris and Phase II 100 series tool posts.

$40

Segment Stop and Detent The Segment Stop and Detent accessory consists a segment stop, two expanding collets, a Detent, and the unit's arm. Both the Segment Stop and the Detent are secured in the top of the unit's arm. The whole unit mounts on the base with a ½" bolt.

Segment Stop – The Segment Stop has two adjustable stops mounted top and bottom. The Segment Stop works by first fitting expanding collets in the 5/32" holes of the Index Plate. The collets are secured by means of a set screw in the collets. As the Index Wheel is turned the collets are stopped by either of the adjustable stops.

Detent – The Detent is also secured at the top of the arm. The Detent is spring-loaded so its detent can either be inserted in the Index Wheel, or locked out when not in use.

The Segment Stops unit will be extremely handy when using the Dome Chuck and Straight Line Chucks and there is a need to restrict movement of your work piece. Now that the Detent is more visible it will be easier to use than the current design.

$350

Overhead Drive System The Overhead Drive System accessory is used to drive either of the three Cutting Frames i.e the Drilling Frame, and the two Universal Cutting Frames. The Overdrive Drive System can be moved to match any position of the cutting frame, and is quiet in use. The variable speed controller is used to match the type of cutting frame, type of ornamenting, and hardness of the work piece being ornamented.

The Drive System comprises of the following components: Sherline DC motor and controller, Motor Mount, Structural framing components and brackets, Shaft collar, Pulley block, 4 Locking handles, and 3 pieces. of 1" bar stock---36", 24", and 18".

$625


Tailstock Bed

The L-W Tailstock Bed – the tailstock, like most tailstocks, is made to support long, slender objects such as pens or finials. The challenge of the rose engine is that the tailstock must rock with the headstock. The tailstock bed bolts to the headstock below the spindle in two different positions, and the tailstock, that is included with the Dome Chuck, is used to support the work piece. The higher position allows for objects of about 3 ¼" in diameter to be turned. The lower position requires two riser blocks (sold separately) to raise the tailstock, which then allows diameters of approximately 8 ¾" to be turned. The tailstock bed is adjustable so as to allow for perfect alignment. Included is a spring and washer. These are placed behind the tailstock dead center to allow for pumping operations.

$185 for the Tailstock Bed, spring and washer

Oblique Dome Chuck

The oblique dome chuck is designed to both "pitch" and "roll" giving adjustment in two directions. The indexer mounts to the short section of dovetail and can be tipped backwards while the base on which it rides can be swiveled around 360 degrees. Not only can complex shapes be developed but decorations can be applied to angular pieces as well. This tool also allows for multiple operations to be accomplished with only one chucking in many otherwise awkward situations. The tool mounts to the saddle of the double eccentric chuck.

$250.

Dovetail Tower The dovetail tower is an upgrade that will allow for the lateral movement of a rubber along the tower while keeping the same relative position.

An additional rubber holder is available for more advanced usage of the rose engine.

Dovetail Tower $475 *

Extra Rubber Holder $150

* (as an upgrade to a new machine or with exchange on an existing machine)

Slow Speed Drive The Slow Speed Drive is designed to automatically rotate the headstock at differing speeds, and can be engaged or disengaged using a simple clutch mechanism. The headstock can still be turned using the hand crank, however, when a slow speed is required the drive can be instantaneously engaged or disengaged. A variable speed control is used to control the speed of the motor. While the drive was specifically designed to work with the steel stand it can easily be fitted to a shop built base especially those made according to the L-W plans.
Kit comes with a motor, variable speed control, clutch handle, locking mechanism, drive belt, and pulleys.

$675

Threading Attachment

The Threading Attachment mounts to the outboard end of the spindle by means of a collar and set screw and functions in the same way the traditional Holtzapffel lathes did by means of engaging a threading chaser into a threaded bobbin of the same pitch. The attachment comes with four sets of thread pitches or threads per inch (they are 4 tpi. , 8 tpi., 12 tpi, and 16 tpi.) and is capable of making one, two, three, or four lead threads which gives a wide variety of threading options. 

$375

A replacement 3/16" fly cutter holder $35


60-degree thread mill cutter $35


3/8" end mill holder $35

The Screw Feed Tailstock

The Screw Feed Tailstock – –this tailstock is an improved model from the tailstock provided with the Dome Chuck. The screw feed tailstock is supplied with an adjustable live center for easier alignment and better control.

$155

Expansion Chucks The expansion chucks are designed to hold objects both internally and externally. Internally they tighten against the workpiece by means of a draw bolt and conical shaped nut which forces the slotted section to expand. Externally they perform like a cup chuck being closed by means of a hose clamp.

Individual sizes are 1 ¼”, 1 3/8”, 1 ½”, 1 5/8”, 1 ¾”, 1 7/8”, 2”, 2 ¼”.

Conical shaped nuts for Expansion Chucks

For a set of 18 chucks, $350 with nuts and bolts.

Individual Chucks, $25 each without nut and bolt.

Nut and Bolt set, 5 for $20

Engine Turning Tool Holder The engine turning tool holder is designed to allow traditional engine turning or guilloche work to be done using a conventional tool slide and quick change tool post. It incorporates the traditional cutter with a guide (geed) immediately next to it. $150
Crossing Wheel The Crossing Wheel allows for very quick and extremely accurate phasing of the rosettes without moving the position of the work piece being ornamented. To retrofit the Crossing Wheel to an existing L-W RE the spindle, index plate and rosettes unit needs to be shipped back to Lindow Machine Works for modification.

Call David Lindow to add to an existing
Lindow RE.

Angle Plate Oblique Attachment The Angle Plate is used either on the Straight Line Chuck or the Double Eccentric Chuck for ornamenting pieces at an angle. The Angle plate can be used in both the horizontal or vertical positions on either of the chucks and the base moves from zero to 90 degrees. $150
This kit is designed to allow your Rose Engine to rock and pump at the same time. This allows you to create new and exciting patterns with your machine.
$225
