Lathes in stock (usually)

If you visit the shop you can see lathes on show and we can run them for you. You can take a lathe away with you as most are in stock. We are sometimes able to take your old lathe in part exchange. Most lathes are boxed (flatpack or as flat as they go) ready to fit in your hatchback/estate car.

Most Axminster or Record lathes are available to order if we do not have them in stock. Please enquire.
