Metal lathes are most commonly used in performing actions like cutting, sanding, drilling and notching in order to achieve an object with symmetry. Lathes are required in order to transform sturdy materials such as metal and wood and hard plastics into various new objects through insertion of a spindle followed by a rapid rotation at a set speed. Lathes come in multiple sizes with various tolerances to accommodate a variety of material and weights.
