It is my intention to put up plans, patterns, and other files for downloading here. Some wil have a fee attached but others
will be free. I've created a lot of tools and templates that I hope will be a valuable resource for builders
Turn your Drill Press into a Lathe - a small diagram
This is a simple diagram of how I use my 1/4" shank router and my
drill press as a "power lathe". With this setup, I make control knobs, strap knobs and other cylindrical objects. Better watch
out though - this thing is as addicting as air. You'll be turning something on it all the time.
Any builder that works on necks needs a centering ruler. It's a regular ruler with the zero mark in the center and the
inches counting up going to each side. Just put the corresponding right and left marks on the edge of your neck and mark the
center! Print this .pdf off at full size and cut out one of the strips for use.
