    Howdy every one
    Was looking around for a step up in tools to make life easier when i came across this 6 in 1 mini lathe on Ebay.
    Has anyone used one of these machines or heard anything about them as in are they built well and perform as they should? since i don't want to waste money on crap so to speak.

    looking at the specs i'd say it wouldn't serve for much more than occasional use for things like doll house furniture and model building. a 3mm saw stroke, maximum cutting to 7mm on softwood and 14.5 vdc won't get you very far for $245au. you could get quite a few heavier duty power tools for that price.

    i personally tend to stay away from convertible multi use tools, because one of the functions breaking often leaves you without the rest. AC tools will also last a lot longer than DC in most cases. a mid grade hand drill, jig saw, dremel type rotary tool and a vise would get you a lot farther and you'd still have some money left.
