Grizzly Manual Lathe


Lathes utilize rotational motion to remove material from a work piece. On a lathe, the workpiece rotates and the cutting tool is stationary. By manipulating the position of the tool along the machines 2 working axes (X and Z), material is removed from the workpiece and it is brought to the desired size and shape.


  1. Remove chuck key from chuck immediately after using.
  2. Stop the machine before taking measurements.
  3. Turn chuck by hand before turning on the power to be sure there is no binding or clearance problem.
  4. Do not grasp or touch chips or turnings with your fingers, but get rid of them using a blunt instrument. It is safer to turn off the lathe before clearing chips.
  5. Move the tool bit a safe distance from the chuck when inserting or removing work.
  6. Always clamp the tool bit as short as possible in the tool holder to prevent it from breaking or chattering.
