Your careful efforts paid-off with a very nicely engineered and made small wood lathe. I also think I spotted several other homemade tools that you should publish here at HMT.

    Thank you for taking the time to make the video.

    Thank you very much for your words Paul, the truth is that for me is very important to have the tool sharp. I'll try to publish all my works also here, thanks!

    Congratulations Mikhandmaker - your Drill Press Lathe is the Homemade Tool of the Week!

    A tough win on yet another very large week; in fact we set new records for most monthly pageviews and most monthly posts in January.

    Using a drill to power a lathe is not particularly rare. However, this trick typically takes the form of an attached hand drill, or simply a vertical lathe. Using an angle drive here is particularly clever, and no doubt has inspired other tool builders to think "hmmmm...an angle drive".

    What a wonderful build to watch. I only wish that you would have explained the things you were doing and why, while we watched your skilled hands at work.
    I was wondering where did you use the paste wax we see you getting at the end? On the runners or all the pieces of wood? And do you have plans for this build?
    Thank you so much for sharing this with us. I look forward to learning more from you.
    Thanks,
    Tim
