    That certainly does have a very high cute factor. Looks like for the kind of work you would be doing on it, you might want a finer carriage feed than the rack on that one seems it would provide. Mike

    I was on a hunt for one these years ago. They go for big money & don't pop up often, too rich for my blood. Also check out MonoLathe & DuoLathe. There are a few videos of these on YT if you want to learn more about them. Then I started looking at watchmakers' lathe but I still would rather have one of these.

    I have a few of them. To me, they are for display only. Mechanically, they are just a tad above being a toy (and I’m just trying to be nice!). But, they sure are cute to look at!!!!!!

    I think because it is a watch makers lathe and you have to be good at or enjoy working with a graver, rather than the cross slide of a machine lathe.

    It is a sweet looking lathe but appears more fragile or less robust than the Boley or similar lathes.

    Its kinda hard to imagine operating a lathe using tweezers.

    I bet this lathe can make some fine toothpicks, though!

    Yeah but according to the Bugs Bunny cartoons, you have to start with a freshly felled log to make one toothpick. Can you chuck that log in this?? :)

    Rimspoke and RJSakowski,
    I have a Duo Lathe, by Small Machines Inc., buy it has no motor.
    Could you please take some photos and dimensions of yours so I know what to look for in a replacement?
    You can send them to me off-line at: ziegedw@gmail.com.
    Thank you in advance,
    Dean Z.
