The MicroLathe II is a machine you don’t have to baby. It is a rugged and precision machine. The MicroLathe II has a machine ground and stabilized steel bed. The standard headstock has two sealed ball bearings in its spindle. The spindle speeds are adjustable by use of the variable speed control and the position of the belt on the pulley. The Taig lathe is a precision machine with the capabilities to hog 1/8″ cuts in mild steel yet remove just a few tenths, which make the MicroLathe II a very versatile machine in it’s own right. Some big lathe features include large 0.001 inch graduations on the cross slide dial, adjustable tool post and carriage depth stop. The carriage and cross slide feature adjustable brass gibs providing full compensation for carriage and cross slide wear, it all adds up to the Best Value in small lathes!
That’s where we step in and customize and supercharge this already wonderfully versatile micro lathe.
Our unit is perfect for CNC use with the addition of the CNC capable interface boards (purchased separately). You get everything shown in the picture including a standard Taig headstock and a second Taig headstock machined to accept an ER32 spindle and bearings, which gives you tremendous versatility to do many things you can’t do on a regular lathe, just use your imagination.
