Miniature machine tools for the hobbyists.

Miniature machine tools are great for those small projects or even larger projects that require custom parts. Pen makers, jewelers, model makers and even industrial companies have a need for miniature lathes and mills and their accessories. Choosing the right tool makes all the difference when you need precision. Limiting tools, low cost inaccurate tool and tools that are not well made make your job harder and more frustrating. When choosing a miniature machine tool, there are a number of key points that you need to look for. 1) Power of the machine, 2) precision of the machines, 3) accessories available, 4) cost. Its strongly suggested you choose the most machine you can afford and then some more. If you choose a machine that is only marginal for your needs, then you are always using the tools at their extreme limits. This causes your work to be less perfect, take longer and invariable less accurate.

Excellent examples of USA made machine tools are sherline tools and taig tools. Sherline tools are an excellent choice for the price. Sherline tools are miniature machine tools that are made in the USA, are of excellent quality and have the largest availability of accessories. They are slightly more expensive than Taig tools however the precision and sheer amount of accessories makesherline tools one of the best options for miniature machine tools.

Taig tools are also made in the USA, are of excellent quality and are actually more powerful than Sherline tools. However taig tools do not offer the number of accessories that sherline tools do. Having used both sets of miniature machine tools, I can attest that both are excellent value for their money and provided you work within their limits, will produce superior, more accurate parts than others non usa made tools on the market.
