The Mini-Lathe

This product is currently sold out.

Author Neil Wyatt is the present editor of Model Engineer's Workshop magazine, so who better to write on the selection, installation and using of the increasingly popular mini-lathe, a machine which has moved on from being something of a joke, to a precision machine on which good work can be done. It also occupies much less space than a larger model engineer's lathe.

As well as covering chosing a mini-lathe, Neil also covers workshop safety and setting up the machine, basic through to more advanced machining skills, and modifications, additions and tuning of mini-lathes.

If you are thinking of buying a mini-lathe, or have just bought one and are wondering what to do with it, this is a very good book to start you off.
