Lathe is used as a cutting machine

If you have a grinding disc for cutting workpieces that unused, do not be thrown into the trash. The grinding dish for cutting if its diameter is smaller usually is not used anymore.

As you can see in the picture frame on the left, usually dish cutter is not used anymore, you can make a dish cutter operated on a lathe.

By making the dish cutter holder in place on the spindle of the lathe, you can cut small workpieces with ease.

You can use to form HSS lathe bits of material with ease and very good results, when compared to using grinding.

Of course the workpiece to be cut is placed on the holder of the lathe cutting bits carefully.

Or you can add a cutting bit holder made ​​your own.

A holder for the dish cutter is made of iron pipe and iron plate. To combine both use electric welding. Also add ​​the ring and hexa  bolt in order to fix it  while running.
