Caption: Lathe. Historical artwork of a man operating a lathe. The lathe is powered by a flexible pole (at top) and a foot pedal (at lower right). A strap, running between the pole and the foot pedal, is twisted around the workpiece at centre right. The workpiece is rotated back and forth by the foot pedal while being shaped by the cutting tool. This illustration was done in 1395.
