These lathes are equipped with geared headstock, hardened and ground bed ways. Larger models are built on one piece casting bases for rigidity. Available in 16 x 40, 16 x 60, 18 x 40, 18 x 60, and 18 x 80 vari-speed or 12-speeds. Click on second picture for specifications.

  • The spindle is mounted on 2 precision tapered roller bearings and one ball bearing. This triple bearing support system ensure accuracy and rigidity at all times.
  • The headstock can be adjusted for heavy irregular work piece at high speed turning to ensure vibration free operations.
  • Handles that are used for engaging gears are built with locking pins to prevent the handles from being knocked out of place accidentally or under heavy cutting
  • circumstances. Repositioning of handles is done by pulling the spring-loaded handle back and then shifting.
  • The universal gearbox design allows easy selection of inch and metric threading by just turning the lever to the assigned position instead of changing individual
  • gears outside the headstock.
  • Selection of gears at the gearbox is done by a rotational style lever that results in less movement of the gears compare with the back-and-forth shifting style lever.
  • Less movement of the gears means less wear and greater accuracy.
  • For maximum stability and minimum distortion, the entire base of the machine is made out of one-piece casting. The casting is made from high quality Meehanite
  • process to ensure high tensile strength with excellent vibration dampening features.
  • The gapped bed design allows extra large work piece to be chucked at the spindle when the gap is taken out.
  • Bedways are induction hardened and ground for durability.
  • Headstock gears are hardened and ground, made out of Chrom-Moly alloy steel for maximum wear.
  • The headstock is equipped with a job button that allows inching movement of the spindle for easy engagement of gears.
  • One shot lube system is installed in the apron to direct lube oil to all the sliding surfaces.
