Mini Lathe Modifications & Accessories

Here are some modifications and accessories I’ve made for my imported 7x12 mini lathe. As many of you may know, these machines are comparatively inexpensive, but the downside is that some tweaking is sometimes necessary to improve accuracy and reliability. I’m afraid I don’t have detailed drawings for any of these projects because I mostly just figured things out as I went along. If anyone has questions though, feel free to contact me.
