    First, this item is phenomenal value for the price it cost. For one who NEVER turned wood before, it helped to form an instant addiction and to highlight the need for a proper lathe.

    Downsides? This is not for hard woods. I made a chess set from pine and cedar, no problem. Then I tried to turn a hardwood ice-cream scoop handle, only to have the mandrel break. For around $20, this was no catastrophe. Still, this is not a full-size lathe that’s just standing up instead of lying down: this is a drill press attachment that lets you do mini-work.

    I bought this to make some small wood spacers for an electric lamp project. It works OK. One important limit for me was the size of the drill press. Using the cheapest Harbor Freight model($50 on sale) I could only turn 5 1/2″ blanks. Had to cut the tool rest down so that it didn’t hit the upper housing on the drill press. Also had to put a spacer on the table surface so that the allen screw didn’t protrude below the mount. Could have achieved the same thing by drilling a hole in the table surface.

    On a puny 1/2 HP drill press it is important to find the true center of the blank. I was trying to give a link for a center finding square.
