The P is an ancient tool, dating at least to the Egyptians and, known and used in Assyria, Greece, the Roman and Byzantine Empires. Its dates to around 1300BC when the Egyptians first developed a two-person P. One person would turn the wood work piece with a rope while the other used a sharp tool to cut shapes in the wood. The Romans improved the Egyptian design with the addition of a turning bow. Early bow Ps were also developed and used in Germany, France and Britain. In the Middle Ages a pedal replaced hand-operated turning, freeing both the craftsman’s hands to hold the woodturning tools. The pedal was usually connected to a pole, often a straight-grained sapling. The system today is called the “spring pole” P. Spring pole Ps were in common use into the early 20th Century. During the industrial revolution the P was motorized, allowing wooden turned items to be created in less time and allowing the working of metal on a P. The motor also produced a greater rotational speed, making it easier to quickly produce high quality work. Today most commercial Ps are computer-operated allowing for mass-production that can be created with accurate precision and without the cost of employing craftsmen. P=?
