The PL-1440E metalworking lathe from Baileigh Industrial raises the bar on what entry level lathes should be. The PL-1440E is the best choice for small to medium sized shops just getting into the machining aspect of fabrication, or schools just looking for a high-quality metal lathe at a great price. As with all Baileigh gear head metal lathes, the PL-1440E comes with precision ground and hardened ways offering years use without losing the lathes tight tolerances.

The Baileigh Industrial PL-1440E metalworking lathe runs on a 220 volt, single phase motor that allows the lathe to be used almost anywhere. Combine that with the 8 different spindle speeds, the PL-1440E offers and there aren’t many jobs that this entry level lathe can’t handle.

The PL-1440E includes many features that the others do not; digital read-out, three and four jaw chucks, steady rest, follow rest, face plate, live centre, foot brake, coolant system, halogen worklight and much more round out this great value. Another great aspect of the PL-1440E is that no assembly is required to get up and running. Just open the crate, wire it up, and enjoy all the great benefits that the lathe can offer.

Like all Baileigh Industrial metal lathes, the PL-1440E is built using only the highest quality components. Using only the highest quality components ensures years of worry-free operation.
