    [Woodturning] Transverse drilling attachement

    Hi again,

    So, same principle, for the wood lathe :

    For this one, I simply drilled a 12mm hole in the simplest tool rest I have, made of a single vertical pole, see the spot tool rest)

    Using a little brass pin in the chusk to set up the heigth with the live center :

    And not forgetting the drop of oil !

    In use.
    See also the depth stop, bottom left.

    And for this one, as a bonus, you will have a video :
    (you will be able to practise your french by the way)

    I like the simplicity of just using an oil hole for this, Christophe. I guess the relatively soft wood particles are not a consideration?
