In Detail

Engineer Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

This compact lathe of very modern design has many convenient facilities ideal for the enthusiastic model engineer, small component manufacturer or in a teaching environment (used in our Skill Centre). A very rigid induction hardened cast iron bed with ground slideways gives a high level of precision. The lathe has 510mm between centres, with a 210mm swing over the bed. This model has a 1,000W brushless DC high torque motor giving near silent running. A standard feature is the full electronic speed control with digital read-out of spindle speed, accessed by a push button control panel. Other very useful features included are cross and longitudinal power feed, quick lock tailstock and both metric and imperial thread cutting, ranging from 8-24 tpi or 0.25-3mm. Also included, as standard, are a 4-way indexing tool post with 10mm tool shank capacity, transverse adjustment on the tailstock for taper turning and the rear splash guard. A 100mm 3-jaw chuck is supplied, the headstock spindle being through bored to 20mm diameter.There are many additional options available including a milling head to turn this machine into a very capable, small, all round machining centre. Suitable for bench mounting with perhaps the addition of the optional drip tray, or for independently mounting on the ruggedly built floor stand. A superb small machine.
