Hack a power drill into a mini metal lathe with precision speed control.
I used a couple of broken power tools for the drive components in this mini lathe.
It features a powerful motor and small size.
The speed control hack is shown in step 5.
The video shows a functional speed test of the lathe. There is a vibration from the motor coupling which is quite evident as the speed increases.
I have added another video in the more tweaks step.
I am starting to think that I need a laser etcher to make a micrometer tool holder for the next round of tweaks.
