Does anybody know of an off the shelf RPM meter that I could fit to my lathe, or one that could be easily made up/bodged?

I've no real need for one, but thought that it may be a nice add on - in all honesty, I'm a little bored, and got thinking... I've had a quick look on ebay and only found the hand held ones, there must be a way of modifying this

I've read about people using bike computers/speed sensors on kit cars and the like, think they had a sensor mounted on the suspension via a bracket and some sort of marker/magnet on a wheel. Bodes well for you I think.
