A beautiful little movie gem. The short film “Der Drechsler” from 1930…
Interesting, lots of familiar techniques, but the hook tool used at 5:56 for smoothing the inside of the bowl is somewhat unusual these days except in the spring pole lathe community. Spot the catch at 6:07!

I have 2 older gouges that are flat and wide like the ones he’s using. I have never seen them used and the gouges in a modern set that I am familiar with are not so wide and deeper to width. My gouges are sharp, I can’t leave them around all dill and rusty. So next time I’m on the lathe they will have a go.
