The max cutter diameter on a X2 is stated at around 1" depending on where you look, personally I dont think that even if you adapted a lathe chuck to mount up the machine would handle it very well. Even the X3 probibly wouldnt like it. Maybe if you had something like a Bridgeport style knee mill it could be done. A benchtop lathe would be a whole lot safer and more practical and besides they arent all that expensive. Just my 2 pennys though.
