Lathe Projects

There is something remarkable, and beautiful, about turning things on a lathe. There is a bit of magic in it. Here I have a variety of lathe and lathe related projects for you including how to make an inexpensive lathe using a hand drill.

And if you are interested in more lathe stuff I have opened up a whole new section of the website here: Lathe Projects




Safety Warning: Being safe, is the most important thing. And keep good practices particularly when operating machinery. Wear eye protection, either full face or safety lens glasses. And don't wear ties or loose clothing that can be pulled into the machinery.

When polishing pens, or anything on the lathe with a lint free cloth be extra careful that it doesn't catch the turning piece as it can wrap around it quickly and damage the piece or anything loose near moving parts!
