As a gunsmith, you should be able to do everything about turning,
It would have been nice to see how you work a woodbench
Hmm, ran into a problem. I can mount the X Y table on my Craftsman Drill Press. The Drill Press table slots are parallel.
I’ve tried different combinations on the Dremel Drill Press table. It looks like I might be able to use some large washers under the table to hold a bolt to keep it from coming out of the opening of the slot in the table. Then a nut fastened down on the bolt should hold the bolt like a stud. I’ll experiment later.I have the accessary box, will check in there, did My pictures help on the work station mounting. THANKS Don
sorry I missed this post Brother but it sounds like you figured it out later on I use bolts and washers to mount mine. you can get T slot nuts that will fit your slots you will need to measure it out. Once you have the machine up and running on a drill press you can make T-nuts using the milling function many of the T-nuts I own were made by me so I have a large amount for mounting things. so if you can get the table mounted to the drill press making some will be easy I use a 1/4X20 tap to thread them but you can use larger if you want. this is what you will be making. Use mild steel you don't want hard because that can chew up your slots on your drill press table or dremel table the T-nuts can also be made for use on the mill table as well.Hmm, ran into a problem.

But the Dremel Drill Press presents a problem. The table slots are in the form of an X.

Is there and adapter available or will I have to "engineer" a fix????
Those pens look great, do you use a template or do you "eyeball" the barrels.Awesome Brother I'm here for any questions. I have been stalled on my projects so I used the time to make some pens on the new wood lathe
was a lot of fun and I knocked them all out in 2 hours. I will be using the big lathe for big stuff but I also bought a tiny lathe for making masts and spars as well as spindles for railings and such on my Ship builds. I should also be able to make all my own deadeyes and blocks now with the lathe.

I am setting up a new shop in one of my vacant bed rooms since the kids have moved out a few years ago. I can use that space for building my ships in. that room has a nice amount of natural light from two windows during the day. I ordered a lighted work bench if it ends up suiting my needs I will buy several more and use those to set up all my small power tools and one set aside for a build bench. I have outgrown my little den area I used to build in so now that will be a sewing room for the wife.
