    So, after happily using my woodworking Lathe, it was time to make step forward, and build myself a small bench top metalworking Lathe!

    I made a 3d model on computer and use some parts from banggood.com such as linear rails, tail-stock, 3 jaw chuck and quick change tool post. I use a sewing machine motor and variable speed control.
    So far I am pretty satisfied with how it came out, as I need this lathe for my Hobby. Often there is a need for some dowels, pins, bushings and now I dont need to waste time searching for someone to do that for me.

    I made a lathe of sorts once with an old washing machine motor and a sawhorse. I used the back of a chair for a tool rest. Until I got the piece turned approximately round, the sawhorse tended to hop all over the place.
