I’m looking into getting a small lathe for our team this fall and was looking for any recommendations people have? The only thing it would be used for is turning/parting hex shaft and spacers for said hex shaft. Anything larger and I can have a sponsor or myself make it at work. I’m just tired of having to pull favors for such tiny parts, and with our rather limited space, am wondering what I can get away with.
This is what I’m looking at currently, mostly because it’s local. I’m not opposed to spending a little more should it improve the bang for buck, but in terms of size, anything much bigger probably isn’t practical for us.
