4.0 out of 5 stars Great mini lathe 18 May 2012
By Joe Jet
Verified Purchase
Great lathe but firs one was faulty out of the box the chuck had to much play in it about 0.6mm so nothing ran true, it went back and took a week for another to get here. the second one is great centred some stock in the chuck and its off centre by less than 0.02mm. It does need some cleaning when you get it as its covered in oil/grease to protect it, cleaned thet off and mut a light coating of machine oil on.
The only 2 complaints are 1. the safety guards the main chuck cover cant be used if you are using larger pieces, the safety stop won't allow you to turn it on as it cant fully close, but who uses safety guards? (review of how I lost a finger coming soon!)
2. As the other reviewer said no cutting bits supplied.

I have been making some mini rollers they are 3mm diameter this lathe is ideal (ordered the mill kit as well so hope that's as good)

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit like the Curate's egg, good in parts 29 Mar 2014
By K. New
Verified Purchase
Some parts of the package are very well engineered such as the lathe bed itself but other parts such as the top slide are not. The top slide still rotated too easily after tightening it in place using the special adjusting spanner; I was reluctant to tighten it any further in case damage was done to the tightening screw.

The speed control is all or nothing - turning it from off did not produce a smooth increase in speed. Nothing happens for the first 1/4 of a turn then the motor seems to go straight to 1/2 speed. Turning it further, full speed is reached well before the control is turned fully on.

I bought the mill conversion kit to go with the lathe from a separate source. Here, the engineering was solid in most parts. What wasn't was the bed raising mechanism which consists of a substantial round column, the adjustment is controlled by a very well engineered dial mechanism at the bottom. To raise or lower the table you have to slacken off a modified allen screw on the front of the column before adjusting the dial. When you do this, the table can rotate on the column by 5 to 10 degrees thus making anything you are milling to go out of alignment.

The milling kit contains a 3 jaw drill chuck to hold the milling cutter. This screws onto the headstock in place of the 3 jaw lathe chuck when milling. It did not appear to run true. Furthermore, the tailstock is not designed to take this or any other drill chuck, it can only be used as a centre so you cannot drill or tap the work using the tailstock when using the lathe in it's lathe configuration.

90 % of the machine is well thought out and well made. It is just the 10 % that isn't that lets the whole thing down.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great bit of kit 31 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase
This is a superb bit of kit, I have only given 4 stars as it does not come with any cutter bits, so you cannot use it out of the box. If your a model maker its a must have. On the delivery side I was messed about by Yodel, said they had tried to deliver and said no one was in, I have CCTV footage to prove otherwise, also when it was finally delivered it was left on the doorstep. very bad in my view.
