Making a Birdcage Awl from an old drill bit

    I need a lathe for the workshop. If you'd like to help here's my Patreon account: www.patreon.com/TheSmallWorkshop
    This project was inspired by an awl I've seen a while ago on JDCD Design's channel: association-eliezer.org/us/JamesDCD92
    A birdcage awl is different from the regular scratch awl in the way the tip is sharpened: it has four sides, like a nail. This helps it tear the wood fibers a little when marking, creating a clearer mark and also a better start for drill bits.
    I've used an old 1/4 (6mm) SDS bit for this, they are made from decent steel and I have plenty of used ones around. The brass ferrule is simply a water plug from the plumbing section of my local DIY store. The wood is from a dead apple tree that my father used to have in his yard.
    Like I've mentioned before, I had to sell my old lathe, so I don't have a lathe in the shop at the moment so I've turned this handle using a drill, and it was sketchy at best. I don't feel comfortable using that again and would not recommend this method to anyone.

Don't rely on people's charity, just make enough Awls to sell, and with the money buy the lathe that you want.

A ''WOOOOOOW~NDERFUL'' ARTWORK MY FRIEND.... what you do is the real craftsmanship of many years ago, today everything is used a few times and then you throw away, you must instead learn to repair the old tools, or build new ones like you, you're really very good. congratulations. ps. Sorry my bad English, I'm Italian and I studied English at elementary schools.

I see you are expert making stuffs from scraps or craps. now a days a lathe is not expensive and making stuffs with improper stuffs takes a lot time than doing with right tools. crappy methods create just tools, not the quality one. btw. I have small lathe and I make fine goods like a pen or shaving razor brush in 20m or less time.

LMAO , losing at least 3 fingers, probably poke an eye out. spend thousands of dollars. on machinery ,material, hospital bills. lose 4 months of my life . END up throwing away what i tried to make.. Just go the the hardware store and buy a cheap made in china awl. AND cry.. Thanks a lot!! I'll never watch a you tube video again . My life is ruined.

Since that was a specialty aircraft drill you used for the awl point then without question it would have been made from High Speed Steel. (HSS) There's not a hope your going to affect it's heat treatment and the original hardness at home with a torch. High Carbon tool steels can be home heat treated but HSS can't with the normal equipment available in a home shop.
