Amateur wood turning. I wanted to experience wood turning however getting a real lathe is out of the question. Since my intention is purely experimental I thought I’d make my own simple lathe with an electric drill. The distance between centers in 9 inches and maximum turning diameter is 3 inches. Grizzly sells a lathe with similar specs but then again there is the problem of importation. (I am in the Philippines.) This set up works perfectly well even if it requires more fine tuning as of now.
I’ve also assembled an small thickness sander using the same drill and a Master Vise. I’ll upload the photos when ready.
