Tool News - Steel City Granite Mini Lathe


The 5-speed mini-lathe has a powerful 1/2 HP motor with speeds of 500, 1300, 2100, 2750 and 3600 RPM for a wide range of turning operations. It features a solid granite bed and headstock, a 12-inch swing over the bed with 27 inches between centers, for ample capacity without the need for a bed extension. Other features include a push button switch, 6-inch tool rest, ball bearing live center #2 MT, spur center, 3-inch faceplate, knockout bar, 1-inch 8 TPI R.H. thread and wrenches. Granite won’t warp and isn’t affected by heat, cold or humidity. So it avoids the rust problems associated with traditional cast iron construction. This heavy-duty granite lathe absorbs vibration, making sure turnings are smooth and accurate. Granite also makes it virtually maintenance-free. The new 5-speed granite mini-lathe is backed by their standard five year warranty on the machine and ten years on the granite components.
