microlux 7x16 mini lathe

microlux 7x16 mini lathe

Careful workmanship gives you high dimensional accuracy and long life, and smooth operation lets you put fine finishes on turnings up to 7 inches in diameter and 16 inches long. Yet, it's compact enough (just 86 pounds) to be portable.

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.

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.

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.

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).

I struggled for years with a crappy mill. I bought my Micro Mill about a year ago. After a few hours of assembly, adjusting and lubing everything it was ready to work with.
The variable speed control allows for proper speed to feed rate to be easily maintained. I installed the available DRO on all 3 axis. This along with a quality CNC vise allows me to produce accurate consistant parts with ease.
I use my machine almost daily on steel, iron, and aluminum with no issues.
THIS IS the Mini Mill you want.

I bought this when it was 899.00, I have enjoyed using this machine because I use to be a Tool & Die maker. I am no longer one yet I do very much like using this mini-mill because it has the strength to cut metal but I would recommend keeping it to mild steel or softer.
Saying that, this little guy can cut aluminum all day long and not have a problem. If you are a professional tool maker then you may not need a digital speed readout for your spindle but since this guy is small and speed does make a big difference, I do recommend it to save you a lot of time getting the correct speed.
I recommend the Microlux High Precision Heavy Duty R8 miniature milling machine. It is a very good machine to have in your garage or shed because it is small but very useful and it only requires 110-120v outlet.
Make sure you grease down everything when not using it, after all it is steel and will rust in high humidity states.
Rotary table with 4 jaw independent chuck will be my next purchase.

Larger and more robust than expected, good sale price, prompt shipment. Easy, accurate operation. my only initial concern was less than ideal assembly and setup instructions. Read every word and understand each step, especially in take- down, wiring, and re-assembly of the electronic assembly. If you are new to milling machines do some research on basic design and use of this tool.

Wonderful Milling Machine, with performance suitable for working in mendelism.

A pity that I do not find in Spain distributors who put it up for sale, and buying it as an import represents a large increase in the price for taxes.
