Milling/drilling on Lathe

Hi all, I am about to start on a part on my lathe, and I need to drill a series of holes round the the outside of it. Normally I would use a dividing head on a mill, but I do not have access to one for the moment so I need to improvise something.

Getting the lathe chuck in the right place isn't going to be to hard, but I need to find a way to drill the holes. Does anyone know of anyone who makes a drill that could be held in the tool post for example or a better solution?

The holes at worst are going to be 8mm by 15mm deep into aluminimum, so nothing to hard.
