Lathe machine is one of the most versatile and widely used machine tool all over the world. It is commonly known as Mother of all Machines. An engine lathe is the most basic and simplest form of the lathe. It derives its name from the early lathes, which obtained their power from engines. Besides the simple turning operation, lathe can be used to carry out other operations also, such as drilling, reaming, boring, taper turning, knurling, screw thread cutting, grinding etc. The Light Weight (wood) lathe machine is introduced to lessen the human suffering and to improve economic and technological standard, and for years Nigeria recognized that she was economically and technological poor and has been economically dependents on the western world for survival in terms of technology. To discourage this importation of technological equipment placed embargo on the importation of certain goods and this inspired our people to recognized indigenous technology though our fore father used axe, cutlass and some other sharp tools from designing woods. It is the acknowledgement of this fact that led to the design of wood lathe machine, even though this project of design and fabrication of Light Weight Lathe machine is a copied design, we tried to improve more on this machine so that it can design wood with little or no stress, utilizing the available material in order to reduced cost for production purposes and durability.
