Taig Micro Lathe II

The MicroLathe II is a machine you don't have to baby. It is a rugged and precision machine. The MicroLathe II has a machined, ground and stabilized steel bed. It has two sealed ball bearings in its spindle, coupled with a six speed positive vee belt drive. The spindle speeds are set in a geometric progression from 525 to 5200 RPM. A precision machine with the capabilities to 'HOG' 1/8 inch cuts in mild steel yet 'Dust' a few tenths, make the MicroLathe II a very versatile machine.

Some big lathe features include large 0.001 inch graduations on the cross slide dial, adjustable tool post and carriage depth stop. With adjustable brass gibs providing full compensation for carriage and cross slide wear, it all adds up to the BEST VALUE in small lathes!

Ramblin' Dan’s Store (RDS) does not stock the Taig Micro Mill in local inventory. All Micro Mills are dropped shipped directly from the Taig Tools factory in Chandler, Arizona, USA. You will be receiving the latest factory fresh production.

Please note:  Machine orders are transferred to Taig within 24 hours of receipt at RDS. Fullfillment and shipping from Taig is variable and can be 7 to 10 days to ship plus travel time. Some orders ship much faster. This lag is beyond control of RDS. Taig generally does NOT provide order tracking. RDS can determine when product ships from a billing notice.
