A manual lathe is a type of machine tool which rotates the workpiece about an axis against the edge of a cutting tool. The workpiece created has symmetry about the axis of rotation. The cutting tools can be moved about the workpiece in two different axes known as X and Z. In the X axis, cutting tools are moved front to back. In the Z axis they are moved left and right. The workpiece is usually held in place about the axis of rotation using a chuck or collet. It can also be held in place by either one or two centers, one of which can typically be moved horizontally to accommodate varying workpiece lengths.
