How to convert a drill press stand into a homemade lathe

How to convert a drill press stand into a homemade lathe

This idea is not new at all, many people made their own homemade lathes and I've borrowed ideas and inspiration from many of them. This is my version of a DIY lathe. I used a broken drill press stand I had laying around.

Caution: Making and using your own power tools is a bit dangerous, so if you want to make something like that yourself, do it at your own risk.
