The Complete Mini-Lathe Workshop


Twenty-seven projects from the pages of The Home Machinist magazine to enhance a mini-lathe, or for tooling to increase its usability. The make of lathe isn’t specified, but appears to be a generic model made by Sieg Industries.

Ranging from bed wipers to a quick-change toolpost, through steady rests to horizontal and vertical milling attachments the projects are useful, interesting and well described. Clearly you might need to adapt them to your lathe, and one of the great attractions of this book is that whilst aimed mainly at the mini-lather owner, all the projects may be scaled up for use on any size of lathe.

131 very well produced ring-bound pages with full drawings, and all colour photographs. Card covers.

A useful book!
