The LittleMachineShop.com HiTorque 8.5x20 Bench Lathe for sale is the best in its class. No other lathe this size offers power cross feed. The updated control panel allows you to stop and then restart the lathe at a pre-selected speed.
The Deluxe model includes digital readouts (DRO) on the compound rest, cross slide, carriage, and tailstock (cross slide and carriage DROs feed data via magnetic scales to a Bluetooth equipped tablet display). All DROs read equally accurately in inches and mm.
The Deluxe model also includes an AXA quick change tool post set with five tool holders; anodized aluminum hand wheels with black anodizing in the centers; chrome knobs and levers; and a heavy duty splash guard that covers the full bed length. In addition, the compound rest is modified to better accommodate the quick change tool post.
The 1000 Watt brushless spindle drive motor provides tremendous low-end torque. And you can vary the speed from 100 rpm to 2000 rpm continuously in both directions. There are no gears to shift. The updated control panel allows you to stop and then restart the lathe at a pre-selected speed.
