Perceived wisdom seems to be that you should avoid fluorescent lighting in
case you fool yourself into thinking the chuck is actually stopped and the
noise of the lathe running at 1000rpm is coming from next door. I've tried
winding the lathe spindle speed up and down from 40 - 2000 rpm and I can't
get this to happen, almost at around 300 rpm, certainly not at 50 rpm.
Wouldn't it actually be a good thing to be able to strobe the work piece so
you could see the finish as it happened, particularly when facing off ?
