The current issue of Lapidary Journal has an excellent
do-it-yourself article on making a Foredom lathe attachment using
wood and hardware store components.It is really quite ingenious and
would be a lot cheaper than the lathes traditionally used by
jewelers. It is a two part article necessitating waiting 'til next
month to complete the project. I have a hunch that one of our
Oriental friends might pick up on this and put together a kit with
all the components necessary to assemble this great little tool.
Unfortunately, not all of us would have the necessary tools to do
the job while others might not have ready access to the components.
