A Metal Lathe or Metalworking Lathe is a large class of lathes designed for precisely machining relatively hard materials. The lathes remove material from a rotating workpiece, which is held in place on the spindle with a chuck or faceplate, via linear movements of various cutting tools, such as tool bits and drill bits. The cutting tool is mounted on the carriage or tailstock and moved against the spinning workpiece to perform the cut.
Typical metal lathe cutting operations include facing, turning, parting, drilling, reaming,
grooving, knurling and threading. There are a wide variety of tools and workpiece holding devices available for each of these operations.
A Lathe consists of a bed, carriage (with cross-slide and toolpost), headstock, back gear (other geartrain nearby drives leadscrew), cone pulley for a belt drive from an external power source, faceplate mounted on spindle, tailstock and leadscrew etc.
The metal lathes are a good choice for model makers, experimenters, inventors and just about anyone else who is interested in metalworking or has a need to fabricate small precision parts.
