My Luxury Lathe

I bought this lathe in 2013 and I have been using pretty regularly for the past 6 years. I have had very little trouble with it. Remember it is not a production toolroom lathe, it is a mini lathe. Treat it right and it will treat you right. I also have three other mini lathes of different brandings. I use them to give lathe training occasionally. But my Micro Mark 7x16 is the lathe I use year around. The motor is far superior to to others and this one is much quieter. The longer bed way is such a luxury. Think of it as going from a twin size bed to a king size bed. (My first lathe was a 7x10).

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

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.

Great machine tool that has never given me problems

I have the older 7 x12 inch lathe and have had it for a number of years. I'm no expert machinist but this lathe is very well built and has given me no problems in the years I have owned it. I have machined some tooling for pyrotechnics and it has worked well (the lathe and the tooling I produced). For a hobbyist grade lathe, don't let the title fool you. You can produce some excellent parts in this lathe with the proper knowledge and patience to learn.
