last week we had to make a turning longer than our lathe. we always have to do this when we make a bed post, but usually we set up the drill press in an agonizing, tedious manner … i only had to do oe truning and someone was using the drill press so i figured it was time to make a lathe jig .. it worked slick … there are more instructions and larger photos and more text on my dorset custom furniture blog.

I have a shopsmith, which works great for drilling horz. holes. I will apply your idea to the shopsmith, it should make drilling the hole as easy as you're doing if not easier because it is basically a horz. drill press and lathe in one which makes it perfect for this. Thanks for sharing a great idea. You may want to purchase a shopsmith just for an application like this. They sell very inexpenively on ebay.
