What is a Lathe?

A lathe is a machine that produces parts by turning them into a final product. There are three main types of lathes: primary, secondary and tertiary. Primary lathe is the most basic and most common type and is used to produce small parts such as screws, nuts and wheel bearings. A secondary lathe is used to produce larger items such as sculptures, automobiles or furniture. A tertiary lathe is used to create more complex products such as toys or computers.

How to Use a Lathe.

The most important thing to remember when using aLathe is to always keep the machine in motion. The faster the machine moves, the better the quality of your work. Also make sure you do not overload the machine; too much force can cause damage or even malfunction! When using a standard screwdriver, use both hands to have a good grip on the workpiece and keep your hand close to the tool as you turn it. Make sure to use a light touch so you don't over-rotate the part you're trying to produce.
