The M1049 has been specially designed to provide many years of trouble free service. Close attention to detail, ruggedly built parts and a rigid quality control program assure safe and reliable operation.
This bench sized lathe has all the features and precision of the larger lathes, but at a fraction of the cost. Why pay for extra capacity when most lathe projects are well within the capability of this great tool. Check out all the features and you'll agree, it's got everything you need.
The M1049 allows you to manually move the cutting tool around the workpiece with the three handwheels on the apron. This option comes in handy when cutting tapers on parts or setting the proper infeed angle when threading.
The longitudinal handwheel moves the carriage left or right along the bed and is helpful when setting up the machine for turning or when manual movement is desired during turning operations.
The cross slide handwheel moves the top slide toward and away from the work. Turning the dial clockwise moves the slide toward the workpiece and offers extreme precision.
The compound slide handwheel controls the position of the cutting tool relative to the workpiece. The graduated dial is adjustable and can be used to cut specific lengths longitudinally, when set parallel to the spindle axis.
This metal lathe features a four-way tool post mounted on top of the compound slide, and allows a maximum of four tools to be loaded simultaneously for maximum efficiency.
The four-way tool post allows for quick indexing to new tools. This is accomplished by rotating the top handle counterclockwise and then rotating the tool post to the desired position. Rotate the top handle clockwise to lock the tool into position and your new tool is ready to go.
The M1049 metal lathe includes a three-jaw scroll chuck with hardened steel jaws that self-center the workpiece. An extra set of jaws is included for machining larger workpieces.
The four-jaw chuck also has hardened steel jaws but are adjusted independently to hold an off-center workpiece. Each jaw can be removed from the chuck body and reversed for special clamping applications.
The included steady rest serves as a support for long shafts and can be placed anywhere along the length of the ways.
