Also now available with 2 Axis DRO!
Our first lathe was a dinky little thing with a 750W motor and 300mm between centres. It paid itself off within a couple of years making parts for our flexible oil return hoses, but only after we upgraded the motor to 3-phase and drove it off an inverter. So as you can image we looked hard to find a supplier that would be able to supply a good machine to our spec, and now we have the EML-290 manual lathe. A machine aimed at the serious home workshop with the space and the need for larger diameters and lengths.
The EML-290 boasts a massive 38mm (approx. 1.5″) spindle bore with a MT5 taper, 290mm swing over bed (11.4″) and 700mm (27.5″) between centres. Suffice to say, there is plenty of room for most workpieces on this machine.
As standard, the EML-290 comes with a full package of accessories: Fixed and travelling steadies, dead centres, face plate, 4 jaw chuck, all the tools you would need and of course the key to the CamLock chuck!
Screw cutting is a breeze with this machine as is facing off thanks to the integral screwcutting gearbox and the power crossfeed. The latter runs of a secondary shaft, just like on industrial machines.
We have stock of stands and wedge type quick change tool posts. A DRO can also be supplied fitted or for retrofit upon request.
This machine really does boast some other cool features too, for example it has a dovetailed cross-slide to allow fitment of a rear toolpost, or a vice! It is also ready to accept an auxiliary milling head too.
Obviously, no self respecting turner would tolerate anything less than a lever locking tailstock.
