Step 1: To Do a Mini Lathe in 3 Minutes You Need!

In this instructables I'm going to tell you how to make a mini lathe with the drill with the main role of a hand electrical drill.

Step 2: First of All, We Have to Make a Bracing for the Drill.

It is good for foam plastic cutting, and shaping of the float.

Step 3: Small Size and Weight of the Lathe, Simple Construction and Easy Usage Make It Suitable Not Only for Foam Plastic Cutting, But Also Cutting of Small Wooden Bricks.

Step 4: The Third Stage of Manufacturing the Float Is Over!

The next stage is decoration of the float with the help of a hand made fixed-spool reel.

    Make sure to NOT use your good drill.

    Just like the drill presses used as milling machines, hand drills are meant for THRUST not for side load. for occasional use (like turning a quick pen body once a month) it should work just fine, but if you use this setup more than once a week, definitely look into upgrading to a "real" lathe...a piece of all-thread, two bronze bushings, and some 2x4's work admirably until your fun project turns into a hobby.
