Default All about Lathes thread

Hey everyone,

I have some quick questions on lathes and maybe others do too!! I know there are plenty of experienced machinests and motor builders here.

My first question-is how far above the centerline or below the centerline of the comm is ideal for the bit to be?

According to the instruction manual Hudy recomends the edge of the bit being just above the centerline of the comm, but that might just be for Hudy lathes.

Thanks.

Now onto my 2nd question.

Is the cutting tool always mounted perfectly perpindicular to the comm?
Are there certain types of bits that you would want to mount the bit at an angle to the comm?

TIA,
Ray

there are angles purposely made on the bit for cutting, you don't want to angle the bit. If using carbide, you can sometimes use a little angle as the bit wears to get a fresh point but this is just a band-aid.
