The Grizzly Industrial G0745 Micro Metal lathe is designed for turning small workpieces. With 4 1/4" swing over bed and 6" distance between centers, the lathe is well-suited for jewelry, model-making and hobby applications.
The compact machine is built on a precision-ground cast iron bed and offers a footprint of 14" × 5 1/2", enabling benchtop use. The tailstock quill travel measures 7/8" and the cross-slide travel is 1 1/2". A single-phase, 110-V motor provides 150 W (1/5 hp), and the variable-speed spindle ranges from 100 to 3,800 rpm. The lathe is equipped with a 2" three-jaw chuck, a chuck safety shield, a tailstock dead center and a cross-slide mounted toolholder.
