I want to rework or make new metal parts that are within let say 20-100 mm length and I can tighten tolerances to H7 even if I have to alter the machine.
I have a "micro mill" that I toke apart and rebuilt for my hobby, and I can make these 0.01 mm tight tolerances with a little attention. Missing a small lathe for some time and for my own convenience this is a last train to get one.
Anybody WTS or know some, please pm me or email to ab08hun at gmail

Ive been looking for one myself. The Princess Auto Power Fist lathe looks to be a decent price/performance for tinkering. Reviews talk about sale price, so if it was on sale value would be better for sure.
Free shipping at the present..

The Lee Valley mini lathe comes with basically nothing - not even a motor; add 1/4 - 1/3 hp motor for another $150 you're up to $550. The metal lathe doesn't show a chuck on the head or tail, and of course there is no feed. So it would take a lot of extra $ to get it kitted out.

About the same blue collor as the PA at amazon for way less and shipped to your door:
https://www.amazon.ca/SUMORE-Metal-Lath ... 083&sr=8-6

In example today...I have a brass pellet transfer port, I want to "bore" a 0.255" hole to 0.263" (1/2" long), and I need to hold the piece in a chuck and not in a vise. btw I have no drill or reamer to this close ID.
Visited two smaller places, one-man machineshops, both closed. And we can expect getting even worst for next many months.

When I bored out my transfer port, I just used a broken drill chuck to hold the TP and just drilled it using another drill.

Guess cheaper option would be buying a drill press, and getting a chuck to put in a vise

Like this.
