Turning on a Drill Press?

Post by LMO » Mon, 11 Dec 2000 09:09:01



Aloha all. A few months ago I saw an ad for a rig that lets you turn small
thing(around pen size or so) using a drill press. Now I can't find that ad.
Anyone know anything about this rig, or where I might get more info or buy
one?
TIA!

The gadget is called a Vertilathe. The inventor spams the group constantly.
You can find it by doing a search.

Actually, he hasn't spammed the group in about a year or two.  He sold the
operation for a while, then ended up w/it again I think but he doesn't show up
much anymore.  George Devine was  his name - not sure about the spelling on that
but its close anyway...

The product is called a Vertilathe.  The web site is:

 www.freeyellow.com/members4/vertilathe

The was also an article is Shop Notes a few years back on building your own.  I
started turning on the home built unit.  It took me about an hour to make from
s***stock.  The only part I had to purchase was a router bearing for use as
the "live center".

Kevin,

I knew I saw a spam from him recently, so I checked and found one posted
12/5. But you're right, it wasn't here, it was in rec.woodworking. But stick
around, the month is young.

Hey Jack,
  do you happen to still have the issue of shop notes. I would like to
know what the date is so I can try to find the article. Would like to
turn some pens and chess pieces, but don't want to buy a lathe.
Alternately, would you be willing to send some instructions on how to
make one? Thanks a lot!!

The main problem with learning to turn on a drill press,
is you also have to learn how to turn it off again.
Merry Christmas...

Hi Rob,

The article was in "Woodsmith" #108 on pages 26-27.  I copied the article
from an issue at our public library.  Back issues of Woodsmith can be
ordered at a cost of $4.99 each.  Their URL is:

 http://www.BackIssueStore.com/wsback108.html

A mandrel is used with the jig to turn pens.  I don't think it would be
suited for turning chess pieces.

Rob

Try the MIMF site for an article on building your own lathe. I think the
url is mimf.com but I am not sure. A web search will give it quickly.
This is the Musical Instrument Makers Forum and a great bunch of people.

God bless and safe turning
