I’m looking for suggestions on a lathe to get to do work for my miniatures. (1:12 scale) I want to do some things, like exterior work, which are bigger but I really want to make furniture. Spindles for legs that are 1” long and .125” would not be unreasonable at all. And certainly, if possible, it would be easier to work on a longer piece of wood and then cut it off. But you know – tiny parts, tiny scrap.
I’m obviously thinking table-top for this.
Am wondering if anybody has suggestions for one that would be comfortable working on the small scale. I know most CAN, if I really wanted to I could do it on my giant CNC lathe. But it would be nice to work on something that is suitable to size.
As a sidenote – if you have any other tool suggestions that would make working tiny easier, I’d love to hear them!
