    DIY Pen/Mini Lathe

    This is rather well done. I recently acquired an old treadle sewing machine cabinet with the express purpose of making a few human "power tool" modules to mount on the top, and this lathe fits the bill quite nicely. A couple of years ago I bought a live center and spur center designed to be used with a drill press. I plan to make the base and supports from steel to be more ridged, otherwise this plan is good. I may also make the "powered" end portable-drill-ready for when electricity is not an issue.
