The main components of manual lathe are:
spindle box, feed box, slide box, lathe tool holder, tail frame, light bar, screw and lathe bed.
Spindle box: the main motor power is transferred to the spindle and the feed box through the belt and gear. The change of revolving speed and direction of rotation are realized by different combination of gears.
Feed box: there are gear box in the feed box, which control screw rotation to drive the lathe tool holder.
Slide box: operation of the feed movement of the lathe, rotary motion will be converted to the linear motion of the lathe tool holder.
Lathe Tool holder: cutting tool can be clamped, the tool will be fixed in a certain direction and position when the workpiece is machined.
Screw and light bar: Connection of the feed box and the saddle box, transfer the power and movement from feed box to saddle box, make saddle box to obtain a longitudinal linear motion. Screw is designed to turn a variety of thread, light bar used in the turning of surface of other workpiece.
Lathe bed: the main part of the lathe, other components are installed on the bed.
