    Please, not for that lathe. That particular model, before the advent of electric drill, used one of these

      One? How about two? My first drill was a 1/4" egg beater from the local dime store. I still have it and use it on occasion. On top of a ladder I can have two battery powered drills, a bit in one and a CS in the other for deburring. But that leaves the starter divot or hole and the old 1/4" comes out of the drawer.

      Sometime later I got a two speed model with a 1/2" chuck. It is great in a lot of difficult situations and in low speed it really can turn a 1/2" bit in steel. But, of course, after the dawn of battery powered drills that actually worked, I found it less useful than the old 1/4" one. Still it is an old friend and I can not bring myself to depart from it.

      And if you look REAL close at an analog signal,
      You will find that it has discrete steps.
