I've got a project going in another thread. There are a few parts I'm considering turning on a lathe. In itself, no big deal: I've got quite a bit of lathe experience. The question is one of materials used. While I've turned wood and metal, I'm considering using plastic on these parts. I've never even considered using plastic on a lathe until now. Is it even possible? My first thought is it would take a slower r.p.m. to cut down on heat issues, but beyond that I'm frankly clueless. Anyone here have any experience with plastic lathing? Or is it no big deal, and I'm just over-thinking this?
