"the Compound Table Apparatus with a Horizontal Drill Head Attachment" -in various metals
This is the second primary accessory that transforms a simple woodlathe into an Ornamental Lathe.
Essentially, I married a small benchtop Drillpress to my Compound Table. The Drillpress head can rotate around a pivot, allowing any drilling angle desired. A custom quill-stop collar was machined out of billet aluminum to replace the flimsy plastic original, allowing for the repeatability of precise depthing.
The motor is suspended upon a ceiling mounted jackshaft that enables the positioning of the motor above the lathe bed, the pulley chord directed along sheaves. The configuration of the motor mount utilizes the motor itself as a counterweight to introduce tension into the pulley system.
