I have included a template for wood and a .STL model for 3D printing. But there are many materials the body could be made of Lego, plastic, steel...what else can you think of?
- LittleBits DC motor
- LittleBits Power Supply
- 9Volt battery
- plywood for the body
- wood for the tailstock
- a 4-5 cm screw
Tools (Wood construction)
- Wood saw
- center punch (a nail or screw works)
- paper template
Step 1: Step 1 Making the Lathe body
1) Print out the pdf template 1:1 scale (100%). (117-LatheBaseWood.pdf)
2) Double check that it printed to 1:1 scale by measuring the width. It should be 100mm wide.
3) If its good cut it out.
1)Download the STL model from Thingiverse. Print it. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:229607
2)Next drill out the 6 LittleBits mount holes to 6mm.
3)Then drill out the tailstock hole to slightly smaller than your screw diameter.
