I always wanted to have a lathe for wood but I don’t have much space in my workshop, so I decided to build one myself using my drill press. For this, I used an angle drill adapter and after many tests I saw that the result could be good.

In this video I show you the step by step

And; if it works for you, that is what counts the most! I have a H-F mini, that takes up a little room and it works for what I need it to—- only quite small projects though.

The benefit of the angle drill adapter would be the absence of lateral stress on the drill press bearings.
Smart idea.
