Author and model engineer Neil Wyatt provides a practical guide to purchasing and using a mini-lathe, as well as examining more advanced techniques. The book includes a projects section to show the application of mini-lathe techniques.

Topics covered include:

  • Choosing a mini-lathe
  • Workshop safety and setting up the lathe
  • Basic through to more advanced machining skills
  • Modifications, additions and tuning of the mini-lathe.
