at taig tools we manufacture precision desktop milling machines, lathes (otherwise known as micro mills and micro lathes) and a complete line of accessories to tackle any type of task. whether you are working with steel, aluminum, brass, wood, or plastic our equipment can handle any of these materials.our machines are small in size but not in construction! we provide large oversize spindle ball bearings and use heat treated alloy steels for various stressed components. being an aerospace manufacturer for over 18 years our machinists know the importance of cross slide back-lash compensation and full gib adjustments for wear as employed in the manufacture of the micro mills and micro lathes. our mills and lathes are built by a machinist and can be used by a machinist, hobbyist, or anyone just starting out.
