Lathes

A lathe is a basic two-axis machine tool that consists of a headstock with spindle, a chuck for holding the part, a lathe bed, carriage and cross-slide, tool turret and tailstock. The workpiece is loaded into the chuck and rotated while a cutting tool moves across it for specific cutting, sanding, knurling, drilling, contouring, facing and other turning operations.
