Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to my shop. Does everything and some Great lathe! Cut true right out of the box! Impressed with its ability, I regularly use it to cut down 316 stainless. Found attachments/upgrades for it very easily

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mini lathe Packaged well. Shipped fast. Its a very sturdy unit. I recomend this unit if your looking for a smaller machine because of space limits. There are all kinds of up grade parts on the internet also but as it sits for building and making smaller peices its a great unit to purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little lathe at an exceptional price. I bought this same lathe thru another vendor but they are all manufactured by one company in China. It comes in either true inch or metric. Mine is true inch. I have had mine for almost 20 years. Except for having to replace the control circuit board after 8 years, it has performed flawlessly. I have routinely turned projects down to 1/1000 inch accuracy and even one project down to 1/10,000 inch accuracy under magnification. I grind my own HS steel cutting tools and machine mostly aluminum and Lexan. I love the variable speed control. My wife is jealous of the affection I have for this lathe.

Can I order new cutting tools from Eastwood 

Asked by: Sarge
The lathe will take 1/4" and 5/16" shank tools available from aftermarket sources. I've used several different brands of carbide tipped tools in mine The lathe's bit holder fits the included tooling fine, but those are a bit under 1/4". Aftermarket 1/4" tools will more or less fit, though not go in deep enough to get rid of potential tool flex - the protrusion is longer than optimal. 5/16" shank tools clamped directly seem to work fine and be at the correct cutting height without shimming.

Can the mini lathe cut G threads and if so to what size diameter?

Asked by: KRK2
You would need to use a cutter with the correct 55° thread profile, and adjust the machine accordingly for the correct TPI, but it appears that it would be possible. Our lathe will not cut 11 TPI needed the Larger G1" and G2" thread
