    Yes, the flycutter in a handheld drill is pretty 'wobbly'.

    I use a low speed battery-operated drill and have only drilled Gatorfoam (wood-veneer-faced foamcore) and 1/4"-5/16" (6-7 mm?) plywood.

    I still have all 11 fingers.

    I didn't know one needed a reason to acquire a wood lathe.

    You have an even better reason to buy a metal lathe.

    You men like this one ? : ( I don't like cutting wood on it - too messy with sawdust sticking to the oil and grease)

    If you mount your grinder on the cross slide, you can also do external cylindrical grinding.

    I have yet to do wood work that creates hot chips that burn one's hands.

    Never broke a drill bit in wood either.

    I guess I know my limits...aluminum and 2 drill bits

    Exactly and your wife will never complain when you hand over a freshly turned walnut bowl. Of course she may not be keen on the ever growing piles of wood all over the place.....

    Murray, that's one of the reasons why I use a hand-powered drill. No broken drill bits, and very little heat. It takes longer to make a hole, but I'm not in a hurry!
