      Parallel to the small lathe, there's the watchmakers lathe for ultraprecison work...or when the part is so small that holding it with chucks is impossible, then we use the split chucks that can hold on dead center, diameters as small as 0.1 mm!
      I can't resist sharing with you some accesories of the Boley F-1 lathe at work.
      The differences between a watchmakers lathe and a common small modeler's lathe will be explained further on...

    Is the Boley lathe the one that you use for custom nuts, screws and bolts?
