Do you find that 0.004" / ~0.1mm isn't quite as fine a feed as you would like on your mini lathe?

When you want a really superb finish, use a pair of 100T change wheels instead of 80T with your 20T gears to get a fine feed of 0.0025" per revolution on an imperial mini lathe or 0.06mm on a metric one.
