one of the viewers on my previous video ( https://youtu.be/11Dh0XLtdFQ ) mentioned that i may have skipped an interesting detail of the lathe spindle. he was, in fact, correct. all of my videos are improvised, so i accidentally left out an important detail regarding compensation for thrust forces on the spindle and bearings. this information is particularly useful to you if you are thinking about designing your own lathe or are having a little bit of trouble with one you have built and may have neglected to study all of the forces acting on your spindle.
