That´s interesting, I did something like this with my hand drill fixed to the bench and used a rasp to turn the wood. Can be used for small pieces only, the hand drill does not support much radial forces

Wonder what OSHA would say if they walked into the shop. Wow, look out fingers, hands, arms and eyes. Takes all kinds, scary.

Copy and paste the blue stuff. I have to admit, all in all I’m kinda impressed but his drill press is the most annoying sound I’ve ever heard.

I would use a saw with a 14 inch blade and about a 5 Kwh saw :)
