Manual Lathe Machine

Manual Lathe Machine

A manual lathe machine is a tool that cuts metal by hand. It has a rotating cutting tool, called the spindle, which is mounted on a fixed axis. The tool holder and workpiece are typically bolted to the bed of the machine.

The spindle is driven by a motor, which rotates at a speed determined by the operator with the help of an indicator dial or potentiometer. The operator then feeds metal into the cutting zone using an automatic feeding device (a bar feeder) or manually with tongs and forceps.

A manual lathe machine can be used for different purposes such as creating parts, machining metal castings, milling metal parts, making precision components and turning wood or plastic stock into finished products.
