I recently made a wood lathe out of bicycle parts and a bench grinder to power it. Works great.
My son using it the other night.

Concerning the home made wood lathe I made.....

There are some really bad quality pics here...

The driving (left) side was made using the bearings from the crank bearings (what the bicycle peddles turn on) of the bicycle. You can still see the bike sprocket thats attached, I made the pulley out of 3 pieces of thin plywood. I attached the pulley to the sprocket.
The right side was made using the bike tubing where the bike seat post rode in. I used another bearing out of the old drill for the right side with a pointed shaft riding in it to hold the spinning wood on the right side.
The hardest part was attaching an old hand drill chuck onto the crank bearing shaft. The drill chuck enables using a wood drill bit as the lathe chuck to hold the wood.
I made three pulleys to adjust the spinning speed, one was too fast, one too slow, one about right. You'll have to experiment. Also, a lesson learned, adjust out any play in the bearings, otherwise the wood will wobble making turning very difficult.

Nice. Son really needs to use safety glasses, though.

This is the guts to a 2 micron laser that was designed to run at -200C. I don't have pictures of the vacuum chamber I designed and built, (Other than welding, I leave that to the experts). The vacuum was pulled to 10^-7 torr to simulate deep space.

The laser, ran on seven diodes through wave guides with these tubes providing liquid cooling to the composite crystal:

Would it bolt up to my '05 1200GS? I think my current 2 micron laser is acting up.

Stick with your air-cooled, it's more reliable.

Proud to say I made this a couple of years ago:



It was a great day.

Just last semester I built this little air powered motor for a class, it runs off compressed air and sounds pretty sweet once it's going.
