A gap bed lathe is a type of lathe that has a gap between the headstock and tailstock. This gap allows for longer workpieces to be machined, as the gap allows for the workpiece to extend beyond the bed of the lathe. Gap bed lathes are typically used for turning and machining large or long workpieces, such as pipes, shafts, and spindles. They are also commonly used for tasks such as threading, drilling, and boring. The gap bed design allows for more flexibility and versatility in machining operations, as it allows for a greater range of workpiece sizes to be accommodated.
