Other Models in the Range
Standard equipment for the basic model 4000 (metric 4100) lathe includes a powerful 90 VDC motor with electronic speed controller, a 2.75″ (70mm) x 6.0″ (152mm) crosslide, 15″ (381mm) steel bed to allow 8″ (203mm) between centers, standard 1-5/8″ (41mm) laser engraved aluminum handwheels, pulleys, belt, faceplate, lathe dog, two dead centers, three hexagonal keys, tool post, sharpened high-speed steel cutting tool, eight-foot, three-wire power cord and instruction booklet. This lathe can turn a part up to 3.5” in diameter over the bed or up to 1.88” over the carriage without riser blocks. With an optional riser block, parts up to 6” in diameter can be turned over the bed. The lathe has 8” of space between centers. The electronic speed control allows continuously variable speed control from 70 to 2800 RPM without belt changes. There is a second pulley position available that offers extra torque at low RPM if needed.
This lathe is a good choice for clockmakers, modelers or those who will be working on small parts. It is also the most compact lathe we make and is easily used where space is at a premium and can be stored on a closet shelf.
The 4000/4100 lathe can be ordered with P/N 8200 digital readout already installed on the crosslide and leadscrew axes. Standard handwheels are not included because they are replaced by the DRO handwheels. The lathe can also be ordered in “CNC ready” configuration ready for the application of stepper motors and CNC controls. In this configuration the standard handwheels are supplied so that they can be used on the rear shaft of a dual shaft stepper motor for optional manual control.
