I love this idea! I was ready to buy a used drill and construct a mount to hold it. I've not seen anyone use a router as a grip lathe. I'm going to try it!
Dean: Interesting concept about using a router, post some photos when you get to that step in the build, it will be interesting to see how this part of the project goes.
