RE: Mini Lathe Amateur, Episode 1

in #hobbies2 years ago

I'm curious to see how this particular lathe works out for you. I've thought about picking up one for myself...

Sort:  

It seems like a good machine to learn on, as long as you don't want to work on long stuff. You can pass smaller diameter rod stock through the chuck and the hollow spindle, but the 3 inch chuck that the machine comes with limits the diameter more than the inner diameter of the lathe spindle. The hole through the center of the chuck is about 5/8ths of an inch.
