Ebay Mini Lathe

Recommended Posts

From memory this question was asked on slotblog a while back.

The summary of opinions about the machine was that it wasnt that great. I have to say it looks OK.

 

 

I would say watch the online market and buy something older but in good working order....I did.

Hi Imugford.

 

Do not know where made but if China watch out. My son and I thought we were really careful a few years back and found so many faults. OK for general use once we fixed but useless for an precision work. Not doubt there are some that are OK but hard to be sure.

 

Resold and bought older English lathe for about same price like Munter suggests.

I bought one of these... Save your $$$. Apart from main bed, all else is plastic & sloppy.
