We engineered our 1118H toolroom lathe with remarkable accuracy- within 50 millionths TIR at speeds up to 4,000 RPM’s. In fact, troublesome end-play is virtually eliminated with our unique combination of rock-solid bedway design and precision preloaded spindle bearings. We equipped the 1118H with a quick-acting tool post slide which speeds up the thread-cutting process. With the movement of just a single lever, the threading tool is cleared from the work without ever engaging the compound slide feed screw. Plus we added an adjustable threadlength control that makes thread cutting a simple operation any machinist can handle.
