Ultimate home workshop?


The Unimat 6 in 1 Home Workshop incorporates a jig-saw, wood lathe, drill press, sanding machine, metal lathe or vertical/horizontal mill. Terribly analogue, but also terribly useful if you’re into making widgets, sprockets and other delicious bits and pieces. $499.99.

 For model-making professionals, prototypers, tinkerers, technicians and gadget geeks who wish to produce precise workpieces with an accuracy of up to 3/100mm, we proudly offer the Unimat 6-in-1 Cool Tool.

  • While once, long ago the Unimat was the king of model lathes, the modern ones (like above) are no more than toys. Good for turning styrofoam ™ or balsa wood and not much else.

    For a little more you can get a Sherline or a Taig that can turn steel.

    Or you can pay a lot more and get a Prazi (link goes to US rep) that will hold 5 microns (5/1000 of a mm) in steel.
