the purpose of a metal lathe is to face, turn, knurl,
thread, bore, or cut tapers in a metal workpiece
with perfect accuracy.
during typical operations, the lathe spindle rotates
the workpiece at various speeds against a fixed
cutting tool that is positioned at a particular angle
for the desired type of cut.
the cutting tool is mounted on a tool post, which
is positioned by three different slides that each
move in different directions.
opposite of the headstock and spindle is a sup-
port device called a tailstock. the tailstock can
be slid along the lathe bed and locked in place to
firmly support the end of a workpiece.
