Product Video


Push-Pull knob at apron to control Cross slide movement. A more efficient design than having control at the headstock area. Top of the cross slide is hardened and ground for longevity of the slide ways. The gap bed allows larger swing but short work piece to be machined near the headstock without changing to a larger swing machine.
Variable speed models allows easy change of speed by turning a dial instead of shifting levers to different positions. High/Low gear selections in the headstock offers higher torque for heavy cutting operations.
Machine is available as a package with 2 axes digital readout system, chuck guard with limit switch, steady rest, follow rest and work light at a fixed price.
