This mini lathe has true imperial (inch) feed screws and dials (.050 inch per turn), so metric conversions are not required. The MicroLux® 7 x 16 Mini Lathe is so versatile it will cut all metals, including carbon steel, stainless steel, cast iron, aluminum, brass, copper, bronze, and nickel-silver, plus non-metals such as wood and plastic. And, with the optional accessories sold separately, it will perform virtually any task you'll ever need.



The MicroLux® 7 x 16 Mini Lathe is not just a stretched version of older 7 x 10 and 7 x 12 mini lathes, but has new design elements required for bigger jobs:



  • A heavyweight bedway to withstand extra forces generated by turning long pieces



  • A more powerful motor



  • Carefully positioned controls for easy access and safety



  • A specially configured and strengthened tailstock to accommodate long workpieces







Note: Some assembly required.

Excellent Lathe - you will appreciate the added (16") working length

by -

I was a bit concerned when I found out that the MicroLux 7 by 16 lathe is not assembled and tested by Micro-Mark prior to shipping it to me – worried about missing or damaged parts. However, I went forward with the purchase and have no regrets. The lathe arrived in two large packages with several smaller packages inside. The protective boxes and inner padding was well done and all arrived without damage. In addition all parts were included – no missing parts. Assembly instructions were excellent and assembly went smoothly – it took me about 2.5 hours which I probably could reduce to 1.5 if I did it again. At this point I have about 10 hours on the lathe and I am very impressed. Everything works properly and, for me, it meets my standard for precision.

No "Bag of Screws" needed

went together like a charm. I was a bit confused by the lack of a "bag of screws" until I realized all the screws are shipped in their final location.
