Nice! I have thought about trying to make a small lath powered by a drill. Every time I see one, I get the urge but somehow always get distracted. Maybe I will try. One thing I wonder about: drills are designed to push straight down, which is what we do when drilling. They are not specifically designed to withstand side pressure. I wonder if using them like this can damage the chuck or even the spindle over time. Have you ever seen comments anywhere about this issue?
