    - A part of centre lathe on which the cutting tool and its controls are mounted is called as carriage.

    - The parts of centre lathe carriage are as follows:

    1. Saddle: It is fitted over the bed and moves along the guideways.

    2. Tool post: It carried machine tool.

    3. Apron: It consists of gears, levers and clutches for moving the carriage with the lead screw for thread cutting.

    4. Compound rest: It is used during tapper turning to set the tool for angular cuts.

    5. Cross-slide: It carries the compound slide and tool post. It can be moved by power or by hand.

    - Gear box control is placed inside the headstock, hence it is not a part of carriage of centre lathe.
