Richard,

Haven't used one but I did see some work that was produced by it at the
last AAW Symposium and some of the work wasn't bad. Not nearly as many
possibilities as a real ornamental lathe but it does a very nice looking
basket-weave effect that I haven't seen elsewhere.

You might try looking at these two web pages to see if they are any help.

The second one is the home page of the gentleman who invented the machine
and sold the idea to Sorby. I had a bit of an online discussion with him a
couple of years ago about it.
