The HiTorque Mini Lathe is the best in its class. It has the most power, most torque, and a longer center distance than other lathes in its class.

This lathe comes equipped with digital readouts on the cross slide, compound rest, and tailstock quill. The attractive hand wheels are all metal, and the levers are chrome.

The 500 Watt brushless spindle drive motor provides tremendous low-end torque. And you can vary the speed from 50 RPM to 2500 rpm continuously in both directions. There are no gears to shift.

The all steel, wedge-type quick change tool posts accepts turning tools up to 1/2" shank. It comes with five toolholders (for details, see part number 3112).

Real top and bottom half-nuts and a reversible 16 TPI lead screw provide extended threading capability. You can create every American Standard Unified class 2A inch screw thread from 4 to 80 threads per inch, and you can create every American Standard Metric class 6h thread from 0.35 to 8 mm pitch with the extra 21 tooth change gear that is included. Cutting inch threads is made even easier with the factory-installed threading dial.

The 7x16 lathe includes a chip tray, a backsplash guard, and spreaders to give the feet a broader stance.

This machine is shipped completely assembled and adjusted. Machined surfaces are coated with a viscous oil to prevent rust. It wipes off easily with a rag; no solvents necessary.

The model 7350 HiTorque Mini Lathe is a version of the SIEG SC2.

*NOTE* We ship machines only to the US and Canada.

Chris Chris' Tips
View a comparison of the specifications for our lathes.

See what the difference is between the SIEG drive system and the HiTorque drive system.

With this lathe, you can create every American Standard Unified class 2A inch screw thread from 4 to 100 threads per inch, and you can create every American Standard Metric class 6h thread from 0.25 to 8 mm pitch with the extra 21 tooth change gear that is included.

But you can actually make more thread pitches than that. And, there are more change gear combinations than those shown in the users guide. To see what you can really do, see the Change Gear Calculator.

Why our mini lathes have plastic change gears

First, a couple of notes:

  • Our HiTorque machines do not have the plastic gears that break. When you read about mini lathes and mini mills breaking plastic gears, the vast majority of cases involve the two-speed gears inside the head. HiTorque machines, with the brushless DC drive, have a belt directly from the motor to the spindle. No gears at all in the spindle drive.
  • Our larger HiTorque bench lathes have no plastic gear at all. Every gear is metal. HiTorque mini lathes do have ABS plastic change gears. Here are the reasons:

  • Plastic gears are quieter than metal gears. Metal change gears raise the sound level to an objectional level.
  • Plastic gears are appropriate to this application. They work fine and when you crash your lathe, they provide an inexpensive, easy to replace “mechanical fuse”.
  • Plastic gears are more economical. We choose not to charge extra for a basically worthless feature.
If you prefer metal change gears, we sell a Metal Change Gear Set.

These machines ship by freight truck because they are simply too heavy and bulky for UPS Parcel Service. If your location will be difficult for larger truck/Semi-trailer, please let us know.

We normally ship truck orders a day or two after we receive the order. For local orders transportation usually takes no more than a day or two. For orders going across county or over water the transportation time can be up to a week or longer.

We add the following shipping cost to your order total:

We ship machines only to the US and Canada.

Additional Notes

  • Contact and delivery. Ensure you choose the correct type of delivery, have a dedicated contact person/number, and are ready on day of delivery. Freight companies charge an additional fee if delivery exceeds 30 minutes.
  • Only one shipping charge for entire pallet (up to 700 pounds total). The shipping charges shown above cover the cost of shipping the machine and anything else that you purchase with it, including a second machine, stand, tooling, and accessories.
  • A "commercial address" has a sign with company name, a public entrance and posted hours of operation. If you are running a business at your residence without a public entrance and posted company name and hours of operation it is considered a residence and a not commercial address.
  • A "limited access" designation is required for "Secured Locations" (schools, colleges, universities, university hospitals, military bases, government facilities, etc). Please provide accurate details on delivery in special instructions.
  • "Terminal Pickup" allows for pickup at local terminal. If there is not a terminal within 50 miles (or 1 hour), we will confirm with you that you still want Terminal Pickup. Terminals tend to be near highways (usually miltiple intersecting) and industrial centers. Only certain terminals allow pick-up.
  • "Residential delivery" does not include moving machine into home/garage/workshop or any setup. Delivery is to start of driveway on the street that the delivery truck can access. (See inside delivery below.)


For delivery to Alaska, Hawaii, or Puerto Rico

We will check with several trucking companies to get the best price and then call for your approval before we ship.


Canadian Shipments

Truck Freight shipping to Canada involves 3 distinct charges in addition to the product costs. (All amounts are in US Dollars, see the current mid-market exchange rate.)

  1. Canadian Provincial Taxes (GST, PST, HST) depending on which province the shipment is going to. This will be 5% - 15% added to total sales amount depending on province (Canadian Sales Tax).
  2. Hemisphere Customs Brokerage which handles all customs clearance requirements. This is a flat fee of $108 on any shipment.
  3. Truck Freight from Southern California to destination in Canada. This is generally $300-$500 for residential liftgate delivery and appointment for single machine + tooling orders. Delivery to a terminal for pick-up or a commercial location with loading capabilities can reduce this cost substantially.



To get a quotation that includes the shipping costs, add the products you want to the shopping cart and continue the checkout process until you reach the Payment page. On the Payment page, select the Quotation option. We will add the shipping costs and return a complete quotation to you within one business day.


Inside Delivery

For many years we have offered INSIDE DELIVERY for an added charge (as set by freight carriers). Unfortunately, most carriers have stopped this practice for liability, cost, or other reasons and we can no longer reliably offer it. If you really need Inside Delivery, please give us a call and we can try to help with your specific situation. Our recommendation however has always been to call some friends or find someone local. Saves some money and lets you meet the neighbors.... 

Alternatively, companies like Navis Pack & Ship ( or similar may be able to help you pack up a machine, or move it into your home/shop.
