  1. Chuck

  • This part is the basically holds the workpiece that you work.

There are 4 types of chuck

The 3jaw chuck or universal chuck- it moves simultaneously by the use of key and also the work piece, it can used to holding around by hexagonal bar or the other symmetrical work.

  • Lead Screw

  • It's mostly used for treading operations on the lathe machine.

  1. Apron

  • Apron it can consist the gears and clutches for transmitting operations on the parts of Lathe machine.

The Principle of Lathe Machine Process
