What should I look for when buying a mini metal lathe? What should I look for when buying a mini metal lathe?

A mini metal lathe can be a great tool to help you get your metalworking projects done without spending a lot of money. However, people can sometimes overdrive a mini metal lathe, resulting in not only in reduced performance, but also shortening the life of the lathe. When you are ready to buy a new lathe, be sure to match up the right power motor with your project. It is best to explain the project you want to do to the sales associate so he can help you match up the right powered motor to your metal lathe needs.
