Overview

This model has 4.5” spindle bore, D1-11 Camlock spindle nose, 16” wide bed, 15 HP motor offers great capacity for large work piece. The low speed goes down to 10 rpm offering enough torque for heavy cutting.

  • D1-11 camlock spindle
  • 4.5″ spindle bore
  • 15 HP motor
  • 12 speeds (10-1,000 rpm)
  • Quick change gearbox
  • One piece Meehanite cast bed
  • Direct selection for inch / metric threads
  • Double chucks available as option

Features

  • 4.5” spindle bore , largest spindle in this size lathes. More choices for different diameter of materials to be machined.
  • All headstock gears are hardened and ground made from Chrome-Moly material gives long lasting power and accuracy in machining
  • High precision pair of matched angular contact bearings supporting the front end of head stock, and rolling bearing for the rear end support. This arrangement allows high accuracy of the spindle even under heavy cutting conditions.
  • Wide range of feeds and threads. Selection done by “pull and lock” handles to avoid slipping in engagement of gears.
  • Gears in gearboxes are supported at 3 points with high precision bearings to ensure long lasting feeds and threading operations
  • Feed gears are mounted on spline shafts for adequate feed power
  • One piece casting bed instead of sheet metal connected legs ensure dampening of vibration and permanent straightness of the bed ways.
  • The carriage is coated with TURCITE for better oil retention and for minimum bedwear, longer life.
  • The removable gap increases the swing by an extra 9” to accommodate larger work pieces that are short in length
  • Jog button is equipped at headstock for easy engagement of gears before cutting

Optional leadscrew guard that covers entire front of bed

  • 5” spindle bore , largest spindle in this size lathes. More choices for different diameter of materials to be machined.
  • All headstock gears are hardened and ground made from Chrome-Moly material gives long lasting power and accuracy in machining
  • High precision pair of matched tapered roller bearings supporting the front end of head stock, and ball bearing for the rear end support. This arrangement allows high accuracy of the spindle even under heavy cutting conditions.
