Was this before or after that excessive rpm PVC explosion you showed me a video of that one time? :D

After that... I had to redeem myself :lol:

It's nothing much really, small universal motor powering a belt to the spindle, dual speed, crude chuck, not very rigid nor accurate. I have a video on my channel... 7 videos to be exact. It's a build log, so if you wanna just see the final product, go to part 7. Search Luke Santore lathe... should come up.

Still waiting on progress!!
