Getting Started with Mini Lathe Tooling


You have purchased a mini lathe, brought it home and cleaned it up. You are ready to start cutting metal, but find that you didn't receive any cutting tools with the lathe. What else do you need to get started?

This document covers all 7x10, 7x12, 7x14, and 7x16 mini lathes.

If you have a similar small lathe, you might not need the exact part numbers described in this document, but you will need the same type of tools.

We will discuss the tools you will need to perform different operations: turning, drilling, boring, and cutting off.
