Manual Feed Option
The M1049 allows you to manually move the cutting tool around the workpiece with the three handwheels on the apron. This option comes in handy when cutting tapers on parts or setting the proper infeed angle when threading.
The longitudinal handwheel moves the carriage left or right along the bed and is helpful when setting up the machine for turning or when manual movement is desired during turning operations.
Cross Feed Handwheel
The cross slide handwheel moves the top slide toward and away from the work. Turning the dial clockwise moves the slide toward the workpiece and offers extreme precision.
Compound Slide Handwheel
The compound slide handwheel controls the position of the cutting tool relative to the workpiece. The graduated dial is adjustable and can be used to cut specific lengths longitudinally, when set parallel to the spindle axis.

Four Way Tool Post
This metal lathe features a four-way tool post mounted on top of the compound slide, and allows a maximum of four tools to be loaded simultaneously for maximum efficiency.
The four-way tool post allows for quick indexing to new tools. This is accomplished by rotating the top handle counterclockwise and then rotating the tool post to the desired position. Rotate the top handle clockwise to lock the tool into position and your new tool is ready to go.
Includes Three and Four Jaw Chuck
The M1049 metal lathe includes a three-jaw scroll chuck with hardened steel jaws that self-center the workpiece. An extra set of jaws is included for machining larger workpieces.
The four-jaw chuck also has hardened steel jaws but are adjusted independently to hold an off-center workpiece. Each jaw can be removed from the chuck body and reversed for special clamping applications.
The included steady rest serves as a support for long shafts and can be placed anywhere along the length of the ways.

Top Customer Reviews
Does it work? Yes but it will take a lot of tuning of the bed ways and dial tension.
Forget about that snowy smooth finish you see, That's Photoshop at work. The real color is more like some bad dental hygiene, tooth yellow. Can we make this a new color for the Crayola Company? We can call it "Bad Hygiene Yellow". The paint looks like orange peel but it's not, it's the casted parts not being buffed out and then painted. Now I know you should not judged a book by it's cover. I have had some bad looking car finishes but the car ran great. Now just because the head stock spins around is not quite good enough to call it a lathe.
Biggest problem was the thread dial. It was over a 1/4 inch out of place and the thread dial would skip when it came by the keyway on main feed screw.
The next problem which is very serious. The two t-bolts that hold tool post and compound slide to the saddle and cross slide system. These t-bolts are less then a 1/4 '' and are not the proper strength for the job. I had to keep re-squaring my tool post to work when I found t-bolts where stripping. That would of sent tool holder and compound rest into the rotating head chuck. Besides the equipment damage this could of caused, you might be missing some fingers if you where holding or turning any hand wheels.
Ran into non-hardened or treaded set screws which had to be drilled out and extracted.
A poor casted hand wheel and one that was all hacked up on the face which had to be flied down before sanding smooth because marks where so deep. This lathe should of never made it off the factory floor. But it did.Read more ›
There's only 1 reason to buy this lathe and that is you don't have room for a huge monster. With that constraint, it's actually a quite full featured lathe for the benchtop series that are available.
What I like:
Speed changes are completed without tools (belt tension has a hand operated lever) and this is not available on even larger lathes. This is likely the best feature of this lathe since you do change speeds pretty often.
Has separate carridge feed lever from the threading half nut (this is nice so that you don't wear out the threading half nut)
Parts are exchangable with other sellers (you can search for the best price on replacement parts from Enco,Grizzly)
What I don't like:
Slowest speed is 130 RPM, which, is still a bit fast for threading
Lightweight so had a couple of parts wear out fairly easily (but are replaceable of course)
Lot of backlash in the compound slide
Quick change gearbox doesn't get you much since it's only 9 gear selectable. You still have to change the gears for most things anyways.
I added a quick change tool post, very handy.
Made the 4 bolt tool post fixation for better stability.
Added a magnetic base light.
All in all it works well for what I need it for, and that is misc parts of steel and aluminum and some threading. I don't use it a lot but when you need it, you just need it. I've considered upgrading but until you get to the 12x36 lathe, they're hardly an upgrade.
Secondly, this thing was shipped in an impressive wooden crate and arrived intact.
I will write more as I test it out....
