This compact lathe of very modern design has many convenient facilities ideal for the enthusiastic model engineer for small component manufacturer. A very rigid induction hardened cast iron bed with ground slideways gives a high level of precision turning. The lathe capacity is 550mm between the centres and 250mm swing over the bed. This model has a 1200W brushless DC high power motor providing smooth running. A standard feature is the full electronic speed control dial with digital read-out display for the spindle speed.
