Enjoy working with metal and dream of one day making a career in the industrial metalworking tooling industry? There are a lot of different fields in the manufacturing industry that include metalworking lathe tooling handler opportunities. Whether you want to acquire this equipment for work or just occasionally dabble in metalworking as a hobby, is it a good idea to know some more about some of the metalworking tools and accessories available.

Let’s Be Precise

Sometimes smaller is better, especially when it comes to metalworking tools. Mini lathes have the ability to produce metal work that is precise, and these machines do not take up a lot of room in the work area. Mini lathes are ideal for counter facing and turning as well as for creating bushings, prototypes, and spindles. Automatic feeding mechanisms and dual speed control are features that make mini lathes a great tool for precision work.

Time to Line Up

One of the easiest ways to line up work pieces when using a four-jaw chuck is to use a tool post indicator. There a lots of tool post indicators in the industrial metalworking tooling industry to choose from, so try to make sure that you choose a model that is durable and fits the job at hand. Many metalworkers enjoy using this type of equipment for alignment because the instrument is easy to install and more rigid than other types of indicator holders. Try one out and see how easy it is to use.

Changing Gears

Lathes that are constantly in use are subject to parts giving out due to normal wear and tear. Change gears have a tendency to break over time, and some metalworking grinding tooling may solve the problem or the gears may need replacing. Change gears, tumbler gears, and other lathe tooling essentials are available to help get you back in operation quickly.

Boring Materials

Boring bars are lathe tools that metalworkers use to make hole in a stocker larger in diameter. Of course, there needs to already be a hole in the stock present to use a boring bar. To create channel for O-rings or other small grooves, using a channeling tool works best. The possibilities are endless when it comes to industrial metalworking lathe tooling options so research tools if you are unsure about their use. Happy tooling!
