Hi guys !

I would like to show you my simple device for small lather works. I have done it from KWB drill stand and three clamps. I am also using it as sharpening, grinding and polishing rotary tool. It is not for power works, of course, but for small projects it is good. Hope someone will find this my humble inventory useful.

Here you can see device itself and final result made from apple-tree and finished with Danish oil.

Thank you, Gilley23 !

You are right about free space – I have no too much at my balcony. I have done it for myself, but you can purchase drill stand at Amazon, for example, or may be cheaper anywhere, and I will give you sketch and instructions how to build it.

Ohhh I see, I thought that you made the stand as well. What did you use to hold the stock in place? Are you using the drill stand legs for the tool rest?

Please look at this additional shots and you will understand this simple construction. Stock is fixing between flat wood drill with removed cutting edge and shaped bolt. Two stands at drill side I have done myself from rectangular aluminium tube.
The good practice will be to drill two small holes on both sides of stock and one diametrical cut at the drill side to make fixing more easy.

Have your say...
