Learn about the basics of metal lathe operations using our Smithy Granite combo lathe/mill/drill machines. You can visit us at www.smithy.com for more information or send us any questions about your project. Our trained technicians will be glad to help you with your project.

"A metal cutting lathe is used to make cylindrical shaped parts like spindles, pins, bolts, all manner of wheels and pulleys, shafts and bushings.

With this machine you'll have all the controls you need to turn outside and inside diameters to precise dimensions. Do facing cuts, taper turning, thread-cutting operations with inch or metric threads, and bore larger, more precise holes than could be done with a drill or reamer.

With a lathe you'll create parts that would be difficult, if not impossible to do on any other type of metal-working machine. That's why they're the most essential piece of equipment in every machine shop. You can't do machine work without one."
