  • Using a lathe as a simple tool and cutter grinder.

    Yes ,skin me alive. I know its not good for the lathe. But precautions can be taken. I would think it could be quite a nice cheap, quick alternative. If one bought a cheap diamond wheel and set it up in a lathe it could be very versatile.
    If one based it on this youtube guys idea I would think doing things like accurate 55 degree and 60 degree could be done with confidence for thread cutting single point tools.
    If most of the roughing was done on bench grinder and this was used for fine tuning ,it could be quite useful.
