A lathe / l eɪ ð / is a tool that rotates the workpiece about an axis of rotation to perform various operations such as cutting, sanding, knurling, drilling, deformation, facing, and turning, with tools that are applied to the workpiece to create an object with symmetry about that axis.
A metal lathe or metalworking lathe is a large class of lathes designed for precisely machining relatively hard materials. They were originally designed to machine metals; however, with the advent of plastics and other materials, and with their inherent versatility, they are used in a wide range of applications, and a broad range of materials.
Introducing "The Cub" 9" Benchtop Bandsaw, Grizzly's first addition to our benchtop series of portable home shop machines. We designed this machine with many of our industrial elements from our bestselling 14" models, and added some industry-first features for a benchtop bandsaw like the stout carrying handle, upper and lower ball bearing blade guides, and LED light.
How did we convert our Ultimate 14" Bandsaw to an Extreme Series machine? We'll tell you: We added a closed cabinet stand with storage compartment, upgraded the 1 HP motor to 1-1/2 HP, swapped the aluminum wheels with cast iron, made the table 6-1/2" longer, and we included a built-in work light and patented, extruded-aluminum resaw fence.
