This is the first video in a series of building a homemade wood lathe
out of recycled materials. This video covers the building process of
the headstock and the base. The motor is reused from an ancient metal
lathe that didn't work, and the bearings are salvaged from a broken air
The only things that I needed to purchase so far was a new v-belt, and
a large bolt with some nuts, costing around 15-20 dollars.
