  • Need some dimensions

    Looking at a couple of different 9x20s and need the dimensions of the head stocks. Width, Height, Length, Spindle centerline to top and sides. Thinking a bout some spindle mods if I go this way. Just scale or tape measuement is OK

        Pretty much all the Brands are the the same basic machine. AN ASian copy of the Emco 8 or 9 inch lathe. The castings except for the sold by Knuth http://www.knuth.de/frameset_usa.htm...onv_drehen.htm
        )scroll down its on the bottom of the page) seem identical. The Knuth one has what appears to be more breaing surface on the saddle ways (always a good thing). One thing I do plan on doing if I sping for one of these is to modify the heck out of it just to see how far I could go with one. Tnink "HARDINGE-IZING" in terms of the machines functions, 5C Collets, Cam Operated Compound Slide, Taper Attachment and Hardinge style reversing leadscrew

          I looked at them really hard and the things that turned me off were the lowest speed, (250 I think) lack of power cross feed, and no reverse tumbler. All these things can be fixed except for the cross feed. Neat little machine nonetheless. I would probably own one now if I hadn't found my current lathe when I did.
