The MicroLathe II is a machine you don’t have to baby. It is a rugged and precision machine. The MicroLathe II has a machined, ground and stabilized steel bed. It has two sealed ball bearings in its spindle, coupled with a six speed positive vee belt drive. The spindle speeds are set in a geometric progression from 525 to 5200 RPM. A precision machine with the capabilities to ‘HOG’ 1/8 inch cuts in mild steel yet ‘Dust’ a few tenths, make the MicroLathe II a very versatile machine.
Some big lathe features include large 0.001 inch graduations on the cross slide dial, adjustable tool post and carriage depth stop. With adjustable brass gibs providing full compensation for carriage and cross slide wear, it all adds up to the BEST VALUE in small lathes!
