Drill three quarters of the way through with your largest bit, and chop through with a small chisel, you should have a short piece of end grain t gothroug. Goo right through with the smaller bits.

Start with a smaller bit, say 10 mm, use an engineering bit or a lip and spur. Widen the hole with bigger bit until you are near the edge of the original hole, then with a carpenters gouge chip the dowel until you are all the way round,

Thread: Problem with Axminster Woodturning Lathe
29/12/2019 16:23:41

I have the M950, now 21 years old, and I had exactly that problem with it, I took the head stock back to the suppliers and they replaced to head stock after it blew their fuse as well. Derek's idea is probably the best place to start, if you can manage the basic electricity skills, the why not buy a new switch? You should get the details from the old one and there are plenty on the various auction sites.

Thread: Making a frame set

Learn to read the old fashioned vernier gauge ( which is what you have in your links) they are easy to read, stand a bit more knocking about and never run out of batteries, but then I am an old codger and a bit set in my ways
