Mark shared the latest version of these 3D printed mini lathes in our community this week:

Redesigned some parts to make them stronger, added spindle control and a new LCD based DRO for axis tracking.This is just a short bed version as I have made many of these and getting short on storage space. The new axis can use DC motors,unipolar or bipolar motors, making them compatible for conventional CNC operation. Still inexpensive to build and fun to make parts with. (read more)

Mailman came to my rescue to deliver Circuit Playground
Which meant I had to make a project with it
So the reluctant chaperone was now an eager Potter Fan
I decided to dress up as Snape (since we have similar hairstyles)
