12x36 Lathes

This is it main page for the 12 "x36" bench lathe (aka 12x24, 12x36 gunsmith version, 13x40, etc.). This is arguably the most popular-selling bench-size hobby lathe. It is the first step into the world of real, thousand-pound plus lathes. It's weighs in at slightly less than one thousand pounds, so this is still a somewhat manageable home-shop/garage lathe that can be maneuvered around with the use of an engine hoist.
