  • Standard-Modern Lathes

    Anyone have any experience with these lathes? I am curious what type of quality they produce up there in Canada. When I was looking for a lathe, I was giving serious thought to purchasing their 13x34 lathe. Maybe some of you up there in Canada could give us a report on their lathes.
    Thanks,
    Chris

    I have no experience using them, but I've seen 2 or 3 around here at a used mchnry dealer. They look very well made to me, and had come out of a commercial shop.

        We had a 14" in our shop.
        Good Lathe.
        Not in the class of a Monarch, but better than most imports.
        Unique thing about it is that the leadscrew is reversable so when it wears near the headstock, you can flip it around.Someone had their head on straight !
        The only negative thing that I can think of, was their drive seems to be on the lighter side, but we never had a problem with it!

          An excellent machine manufactured in the 51st state (only kidding thrud). I have run standard-modern lathes for over twenty years without a problem, highly recommended.
          Non, je ne regrette rien.
