The Mini Lathe (WPS43)

Title: The Mini Lathe

Author: David Fenner

Workshop Practice Series No. 43

The Mini-lathe has become the best-selling item of machinery in the hobby engineering market - often purchased as a first step by beginners to the hobby. For many years Myford lathes were considered as “standard issue” for model engineers, but at about one-twentieth of the price of a new Myford, these new Mini-lathes set the benchmark for the future.

This book is a complete course on using and improving this new generation of budget lathes. It explains everything from setting up and “tuning” the machine for best performance to using accessories and carrying out tasks.

David Fenner is the recently-retired editor of Model Engineers’ Workshop magazine who has based this practical book on his many hours of “road testing” the C3 mini-lathe in his own home workshop.
