We're proud to say that we introduced the Mini lathe into the Australian market back in the early 90's, offering Australian hobbyists a chance to experience the versatility and functionality of a wood lathe in a small, affordable package. This machine carries on that tradition with all the features you have come to expect from Carbatec.

Today there are dozens of options when looking at midi lathes. This machine is a small, well-priced lathe with five spindle speeds yet can tackle those small to medium jobs with ease. Our standard spindle thread and morse taper make it easy to add accessories such as chucks or Stebcentres that allow you to branch out into all kinds of turning projects.

The headstock, bed and tailstock are constructed of cast iron and the 1/2 HP induction motor has more than enough power for projects like pen turning and small spindle turning.

It is ideally suited for the beginner or as a lathe which can be transported more easily due to its lighter weight and compact size. Currently the package includes a drive centre, revolving tailstock centre and 80mm diameter faceplate.
