Yeah I might make another one to actually make some wood pistons but I don't have the stuff right now.

Pretty cool, I like the idea of using the wheel, have you tried turning foam, it works great for just messing around, heres the one i made a couple of weeks ago

nice use of garbage, but so weak of a motor i wouldn't have the patience to do much cuting,

Imao for the time it takes to lathe materials like wood or plastic it's probebly not worth the batteries, so use should convert it for AC power, look for an unused transformer like one of these to power the motor, check the labels for the output power and see if it's suitable to power this.

Any electronics guys know what kind of volts and amps would be safe and suitable for this motor?

I'm thinking a power-wheels motor and chuck made from a section of pipe and machine screws for the future. :wink:

Good practice for implementing the concept, but maybe try something more powerful (like a Dremel or drill, maybe).

i use a shaft on a drill, then stick my drill in a vice. i used it to polish up my gun barrel. its also a great way to cut a barrel, just have it spinning and rest the saw on the place where you want to cut.

any ways nice work... Freak.
