Curtis is correct and even if it was able to turn silver I highly doubt the tolerances would be near close enough for gaff work!

There's a topic in the Workshop section discussing lathes capable of gaff type work!

Why not get an old UniMat. That's what was used to prototype the gaffed coins for Johnson Products.

Along with the UniMat you may want to get about a thousand coins to start the learning curve!

I knew a man that spent hundreds of dollars, just to be able to make his own Folding Coin (a Quarter). All this to save the few bucks for a professionally made gaff.

And in the immortal words of the documentation of Spare Change, it's like spending $1.00 to counterfeit pennies.....

I guess your right. I Just have the itch to do some creative work but to spend a shi# load of money and have no idea what to do with it seems meaningless. Cheers Im calling Todd. LOL

You would need much more than a lathe to make most coins, a laser to cut for a folding or flipper coin is the new standard for precise cutting, and let's not forget it will need to be polished, more tools.it is a very hard thing to do and these coins we can buy are worth the money.
