Description

In Detail

Engineer Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

This is the high specification version of this very fine medium sized bench lathe which has many modern conveniences. As you would expect, the bed is made from high tensile cast iron with induction hardened slideways. Power is provided by a 1,500W brushless DC high torque motor, with all functions controlled by a push button panel. A 150mm 3-jaw self centring chuck is provided, driven by a 54mm diameter spindle supported on adjustable tapered roller bearings, with a 25mm through bore. The carriage is powered in both axis, a clever interlock prevents accidental engagement, plus an overload clutch is fitted to the carriage drive shaft. Selection of either feed speeds or thread pitches is via a simple twin gearbox arrangement, the conversion between metric or imperial threads being just one gear wheel change. There is also a tumbler gear set-up to allow LH threading. The tailstock has cam locking and spindle taper offset; the tailstock ram leadscrew is very accurately made. All the controls are grouped on the front face of the headstock, with the spindle speed being clearly indicated. A locking "E" stop switch and an interlocked steel chuck guard are included. A 4-way tool post is fitted which will take tooling up to 16mm shank size.

This version is built onto the floor stand and is fitted with a 2-axis digital read-out, a built-in coolant system and a work light, resulting in a ready-to-use (bar cleaning and adjusting) lathe with the most useful options factory fitted. All of the other accessories for the SC8-AX1 model are available, such as fixed and travelling steadies, self powered milling attachment, faceplate, 4-jaw chuck, collet chuck etc. This is a most comprehensively specified lathe, suitable for serious model engineering, small component making and educational use.
