Longer is better
We are introducing two new 7x16 HiTorque Mini Lathes. The new model 5100 7x16 HiTorque Mini Lathe has all the features of the model 4100 7x12 HiTorque Mini Lathe plus 4 additional inches of bed length and a 4" lathe chuck. The new model 5200 7x16 Deluxe HiTorque Mini Lathe has all that plus attractive metal hand wheels, digital readouts on the cross slide and compound rest, and a wedge-style quick change tool post.
Full-Featured Mini Lathes and Mini Mills at a Great Price!
We are now offering SIEG Mini Lathes and SIEG Mini Mills. These machines offer all the features you expect from LittleMachineShop.com except for the HiTorque drive system. Our special arrangement with the factory allows us to offer these machines at very low prices. If you want to get started, but can't afford a HiTorque machine, these machines are the answer.
3rd Party Review
Major Pandemic uses the HiTorque Mini Mill to make everything from AR15 lower receivers to luggage tags, as explained in this 2014 review.
See what Frank Hoose of Mini-Lathe.com thinks of our solid column HiTorque Mini Mill in his review of the model 3960.
The Micro Mill Is Back--and Much Better, Thank You!
The X1 micro mill was a popular machine in hobbyists' garages, packing a lot of capability into a small footprint. All the vendors of the original micro mill have discontinued sales, however. Now there's a new LittleMachineShop.com HiTorque Micro Mill, a version of the SIEG SX1P. This isn't your father's micro mill.
Like its bigger brethren, the LittleMachineShop.com HiTorque Micro Mill is the best in its class. It has more power, more torque, and a larger table than other mills of its size. It features a powerful 250W brushless spindle drive motor, which offers tremendous low-end torque, speeds from 100-5000 RPM, and no gears or belts to shift. (No gears also makes it the quietest in its class.) And at 15.7"x5.7", the mill table is huge!
The HiTorque Micro Mill is available in two models: one with a 2 Morse Taper (2MT) spindle, and one with an ER-16 spindle.
