The Taig Lathe

Nick Carter's Taig Lathe and Milling Machine Pages

Welcome to my pages devoted to the Taig Lathe and Taig Milling Machines! I have been using Taig equipment in my own shop for over fourteen years and I am an enthusiastic fan of the Taig Lathe and Milling Machines (both the manual and CNC versions), their economy, capability and over all style. The Taig Micro Lathe and Taig Micro Mill are especially good if you are a novice to metalworking, and seek to learn the basics without a large investment of money and space. These pages are a useful resource for all Taig Lathe and Milling Machine users, with technical support, project ideas, articles, pictures and links to all pages on the internet
