Description: Play Lathe Safety Simulator and learn how to operate an industrial lathe. Follow the tutorials to identify all the major lathe parts and related tools. During this process, you learn all about the lathe including how to turn a workpiece using a range of drills and cutting tools. Finally, you can undertake missions using templates and scan/save your work. There are five complete sections and a robot tutor who guides you as you learn.
Review: Seriously? A Lathe simulator in VR? Well…if you thought that was weird, here is something even weirder…it works! Like, really well. Not only as a health and safety tool but also as an educational tool to learn how to use one! OK, so graphically it is a little basic, but what did you seriously expect from this game? But as always with a free game or app, we need to ask ourselves whether or no tit is worth a download. I do feel that if you have ANY interest in DIY or machine craft maybe this will be for you, but I only ended up killing myself over and over in this app and I admit I had a great time.
