What to Know Before Buying a Lathe
When you’re looking for a new bore lathe, there are a few things to think about. Firstly, consider the stands you might use and your tool storage areas. For a smaller table-top bore lathe, you can choose from a number of different leg stands – either in a tube design, or made from folded steel. Some come with tool shelves, too. There are lots of options top choose from.
For a big bore cnc lathe, however, you might be looking for a standalone unit. This requires more space, and you’ll want to make sure your manufacturing area of workspace has enough room for you to navigate around the machine.
Don’t forget about the lathe bed, either. This is usually made of iron bars and is designed to connect to the headstock. This needs to be strong enough to support the tailstock without bending.
If you’re in need of electric speed controls, you should consider the higher-end lathes we offer. With these extra controls you can store your most commonly used speeds and quickly access them, and more easily adjust your device to the needs of different projects.
