Video Monday: How To Make a Foot Powered Lathe

Hell,o my friend and welcome back!  Today I have a great little video for you on how to make a foot powered wood lathe.  This is something you may want to build now so if there is no electricity after SHTF hits, you’ll be ready.  I found it on YouTube and it was uploaded by Izzy Swan and it is a must-see.  Being a Prepper means preparing for every possible event, as well as being able to survive during that event.  A foot-powered wood lathe would give you the ability to make a lot of great items such as bowls and plates as well as mugs and tool handles.  I seriously suggest that you watch the video and consider making one yourself.  Now grab a cup of coffee my friend and have a seat while we visit.


Here is a link to how to build a more modern one.  🙂


Well, that’s it for today my friend and I hope you learned something that will actually help you survive SHTF.  If you have any questions about this, please don’t hesitate to ask.  Until next time, stay safe, stay strong and stay prepared.  God Bless America!

  1. Having a problem accessing your website. A warning and difficult to get into. Had to do a go around.It says that it is a false website. No security. Using a weak signature algorithm. The server may not be the server expected. Connection is not private. Something to do with your we server.

    • THere killing me! I’m no longer selling anything online, so I dropped the SSL certificate on it. That’s it! Because I don’t have an SSL, it is giving that warning thanks to good old Google!!! #%#%#%####^%###@%%##!!!!!
      Let me see what I can do, I’m terribly sorry for the trouble.

      • OK, please try it again. Oh, be sure you’re going to” HTTP:/” and not “https:/” when you try to connect. Again, I’m terribly sorry for the trouble.

  2. These are just a couple of ways of building foot powered wood lathes. Please comment below if you know of any other good ones. -Sarge-
