Built like a modern version of a classic American lathe, this 16" x 40" Gear-head Lathe has ridiculously thick castings and super heavy-duty construction throughout (just like those legendary machines of yesteryear), making this one of the most rigid and solid metal lathes we sell. With its 24 RPM low spindle speed, it is also one of the slowest lathes we sell, too! But that's not all—equipped with a 10 HP, 220V, 3-phase spindle motor and unbelievably massive tailstock, steady rest, and follow rest—this lathe is a reliable workhorse even in demanding machine shops that turn big and heavy workpieces. A universal gearbox allows cutting of inch and metric threads, as well as modular and diametral pitches. The spindle has a 3.15" bore, D1-8 nose, and MT #7 taper. The tailstock barrel has 4-3/4" of travel and an MT #5 taper. Other features and accessories include a complete coolant system, foot brake, worklight, 3-jaw scroll chuck, 4-jaw independent chuck, 15" faceplate, quick change tool post, micrometer stop, and slide-out chip tray.
