Author Neil Wyatt is the present editor of Model Engineer's Workshop magazine, so who better to write on the selection, installation and using of the increasingly popular mini-lathe, a machine which has moved on from being something of a joke, to a precision machine on which good work can be done. It also occupies much less space than a larger model engineer's lathe.
As well as covering chosing a mini-lathe, Neil also covers workshop safety and setting up the machine, basic through to more advanced machining skills, and modifications, additions and tuning of mini-lathes.
If you are thinking of buying a mini-lathe, or have just bought one and are wondering what to do with it, this is a very good book to start you off.
