HiTorque Machines In Stock
We have these HiTorque machines in stock and ready for shipment.
With its 500W brushless DC drive system, the 5100 HiTorque 7x16 Mini Lathe has the most low speed torque of any mini lathe. And features like the 4" 3-jaw chuck, cam-lock tailstock, full half-nuts, and apron gear shield make this lathe unique.
The 7350 HiTorque 7x16 Deluxe Mini Lathe incorporates all the goodness of our 5100 mini lathe, plus it includes an all-steel wedge-style quick change tool post set with five tool holders. In addition, the 7350 features digital readouts on the cross slide, compound rest, and tailstock quill, and it has metal handwheels instead of plastic.
The 3540 HiTorque 8.5x20 Bench Lathe features a power cross feed--a unique feature in lathes of this size. The 1000W brushless spindle drive motor provides tremendous low-end torque and continuously variable speed from 100-2000 RPM in both directions.
The 4700 HiTorque Micro Mill features a powerful 250W brushless spindle drive motor, which offers tremendous low-end torque, speeds from 100-5000 RPM, and no gears or belts to shift. (No gears also makes it the quietest in its class.) And at 15.7"x5.7", the mill table is huge! It has a 2 Morse Taper spindle for wide tooling availability.
The 3990 HiTorque Mini Mill features an R8 spindle for wide tooling compatibility and a solid column for increased rigidity and reduced chatter. This mini mill has a larger X-Y table and more power (500W brushless DC drive) than its competitors.
The 5500 HiTorque Bench Mill is a step up in size, rigidity, and power compared to a mini mill. It provides a larger table (23.4" x 5.5"), more travel, and more horsepower (750W). The HiTorque Bench Mill incorporates a true quill and drill press-style handles for easy drilling. A button on the end of each handle reverses the spindle to make tapping easy. The control panel includes a digital spindle speed display.
The 6700 HiTorque Large Bench Mill is our largest mill -- a significant step up in size, rigidity, and power compared to a mini mill, or even our bench mill. This benchtop mill provides an even larger table (29.1" x 7.1"), more travel, and more horsepower (1000W). A simple belt change switches between low range and high range, giving you continuously variable spindle speeds from 80-5000 rpm.
