SB1057F 18" x 60" Turn-Nado Gearhead Lathe with Fagor DRO
Designed for demanding shops that want “nothing but the very best.”
The SB1057F 18" x 60" Turn-Nado Gearhead Lathe is driven by a fixed speed 15 HP motor with quick-change gear levers to control the 16 spindle speeds between 20-1600 RPM.
A factory-installed Fagor digital readout displays the positioning of the carriage and cross slide.
To further ensure a high degree of accuracy, these lathes are equipped with high-quality spindle bearings. The spindles are D1-8 camlock with an MT#7 taper and 3.15" bore. The tailstocks have an MT#5 taper with 6-1/2" of quill travel.
These lathes feature a spindle clutch that allows the operator to switch between forward and reverse without shutting down the motor—a great time saver.
The headstock is equipped with a pressurized oiling system that lubricates the bearings and gears before the spindle starts.
The bed of the lathe is constructed with patented Meehanite-processed castings that are hardened and precision-ground in the traditional three V-way prismatic design.
The SB1057F manual was written by our U.S. based Technical Documentation Department and is packed with useful information. The easy-to-read manual provides full instructions on how to maintain your lathe.
All South Bend lathes come with a 2-year warranty which covers parts and assures the unit is free from factory defects.
Parts and accessories for the lathe may be available online and shipped from the South Bend parts warehouse in Springfield, MO.
