G'day everybody.
Recently I downloaded the Lathe Magic Racer that John kindly provided us with and thought I'd give it a spin, so to speak [biggrin]

Only slight problem was I don't actually have a lathe [frown]
To overcome this slight problem I used the plans as a template of sorts and made a few minor changes and this was the end result.

I think I can do a tutorial if anybody is interested.

Actually, I do have a lathe - hidden away at the back of my toy workshop.
Enjoy [thumb]

Hi Doc,

I love this. Nice design and great photos. A tutorial will be a nice perk for the forum community-especially if you include a driver! The design reminds me of the early 1900's Great Race cars.

Thanks for sharing. John

Your latheless racer looks way cool. Not having a lathe is not a problem as you have demonstrated. The project can still be made with a little out of the box thinking. Excellent job.

Looking good. Thinking outside the box is what makes this forum fun to read and learn. There are a lot of wooden toy car's that can be made out of stair rail's not only are they fairly cheap at the big box stores but they are already rounded and square.
You get the best of both. LOL

Anyway thanks for sharing with the forum...
Oh and yes to the driver ( but he needs goggles and a scarf LOL )

Great job on the car. Like most things there is always more than one way to get the job done, you have proved it with this car
