Mini-lathe mods and lathe tools projects
Purchased the 7x12 mini-lathe on January 2007. It is a nice tool within the size limits for my projects and, for a first time lathe owner, it is definitively the nicest machine on the home workshop. Within the first few months I had test a lot and pointed modifications to do. These small lathes can be improved as much as you like or need. Some mods and fixes are very popular among mini-lathe owners, others are more specific to the work one use the lathe for.
This one is a Einhell mini-lathe, manufactured in China by Real Bull, and some mods may not work the same way with a Sieg mini-lathe. Take a look at what is already done.
