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 5200 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 5200 features digital readouts on the cross slide and compound rest, and it has metal handwheels instead of plastic.
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 4190 HiTorque Deluxe Mini Mill expands on the 3990 with a 3-axis digital readout (DRO) with Bluetooth and 7" tablet display, an electrically interlocked spindle lock for easy and safe tool changes, and machined aluminum handwheels and painted drill handles.
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.
Our top-of-the-line 5550 HiTorque Deluxe Bench Mill with Long Table has all of the features of the 5500, but it has a significantly larger table (27.5" x 6.25"). In addition, it comes with a factory-installed 3-axis digital readout (DRO) with Bluetooth and 7" tablet display, an electrically interlocked spindle lock for easy and safe tool changes, and machined aluminum handwheels.
Each of these machines is the best in its class, with unique features not available elsewhere. There is finally a Mini Lathe and Mini Mill worthy of the LittleMachineShop.com brand.
