  • Looking for Info on the LMS HiTorque 8.5x16 Bench Lathe

    Has anyone seen or used the Little Machine Shop 8.5x16 Bench Lathe? I am interested in a hobby machine to 'putter' on and to make small projects on and make the occasional repair to other items. I know where it is built but for what I want it for it will work just fine.
    tnx,

    That is the SIEG SC4, very good machine after cleaning. I did several writeups of it in my blog at http://homeshopmachinist.blogspot.com

    Edit: And the torque is just amazing, really puts the brushed motors to shame
