Delta Midi Lathe

Appearances: Episode 1706


Midi, mini—Delta’s midi and Jet’s mini are basically the same size and the same lathe. The name must be a marketing thing. Delta’s first was the 46-250 lathe, although it’s been supplanted in the Delta stable by the LA200 with only cosmetic changes— probably part of their vast renumbering scheme they’ve been working on lately. Someday this site will be meaningless as a resource due to all of Delta’s model numbers being revised.

Norm featured this along with his two other lathes in Lathe 101, Episode 1706, although he didn’t actually demonstrate it. I have the Jet version. It’s quite a nice little lathe; ideal for small work or for small shops.
