Gifts Any Machinist Can Use - LittleMachineShop.com

Finding a gift for a machinist can be a challenge. We’ve compiled a list of items that any machinist would be pleased to receive as a gift. These gift items can be used with any machine, so you don’t need to worry about compatibility with a particular lathe or milling machine model number. And many of these gifts are items that everyone can use a few of, so it’s okay if the lucky gift recipient already has one.
