Grizzly Drill-Powered Hobby Lathe


Grizzy Drill-Powered Wood Lathe

Here is an interesting tool that converts your 3/8" power drill into a miniature wood lathe.

The details on this tool are limited, but impressive for the price. It can accommodate work of up to 24 inches and 6 inches in diameter. That's pretty big, really.

At about $46.00, this could be a handy tool -- especially if space is limited or you just want to try out a lathe of your own on the cheap.

The funny thing is that a well-rated set of lathe chiselsmight cost you more than the lathe itself!

This is basically a commercial version of a "Afghan Lathe" that you can non-destructively make from a drill, vice, clamp, and spare bit.
