    Drill press and Skill saw lathe....not for the faint of heart!

    I guess this qualifies as new lathe related equipment. If you are a redneck and fearless this may be the lathe set up for you.

    As someone said on another forum, "Hold my beer, watchiss!"

    Jim, no fingers were lost during this video. While watching you are expecting that to happen but in the end redneck ingenuity, skill and stupidity triumph......

    Only way to describe that is with words we are not allowed to post here.

    Oops, I didn't see this thread when I posted the same video a few minutes ago in the Off Topic area. Oh well, I'll leave it up for the entertainment\edumacation of the flatworkers who might miss seeing it here.

    I had stumbled on that video a few days ago, pretty wild. Note in one of his replies below that he is planning to set up to mechanically hold the skillsaw and hand crank it up and down and even in and out to adjust depth of cut. He is getting much closer to a working proposition then. Funniest thing to me is that all of this is sitting on a table saw. A table saw and a few mods actually makes an excellent doweling machine.
