Bruce writes – “I guess I could have gone out and bought a commercial wood-lathe and used that for metal spinning but I have had an old budget-priced drill press sitting here for a couple of years and I really wanted to put (at least parts of) it to good use. So, I scrounged the motor, pulleys, drive belt, power wiring/switch and bearings from this drill press and built a lathe around them!” – Thanks Bf5man! Link.
