Nicely done Dan. I also use a home made version of that tool. It's great for embellishing.

Thanks.  You were the one who inspired me to make one in your honey jar thread.  Thanks for posting that.

way cool Dan...

can you tell us more about your creation/handle....

I made the drill handle from a Black & Decker drill that went bad.  Bolted the stabilizing handle to the chuck.  Most chuck threads are 3/8" fine so I just bolted the handle to the chuck.  I use it to center drill on the lathe when it doesn't require the precision of the tail stock mounted drill chuck say for drilling and hollowing an ornament to take out some weight.  It filled the need for a handle for this quite nicely.

Good job Dan. I have a drill handle almost just like that except no fancy black paint job jut the pecan. Nice the way you created your elf. I bought mine and everyone at the bunker copied it.

Craft supply sells the commercial version. They have a video on their website showing it in use.

If you look real close at the second picture it says Black & Decker on the handle.  It is a reused plastic stabilizing handle from an old drill.

Thanks, working on making one this week.  My apprentice got a no go on using the lathe as of yet.  After the belt sander fiasco his mother is a bit skeptical.

 

His Dad on the other hand told me go for it.   :JawDrop:

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
