The Baileigh Industrial PL-1860 lathe is a great investment that out performs other lathes in its class.
It is affordable, rugged, reliable and easy to operate.
The PL-1860 includes a vast array of features and accessories as standard equipment. Things like the Mitutoyo® 2 axis digital readout system, 8″ 3-jaw universal chuck, 8″ back plate, coolant system, steady rest, follow rest, headstock chuck-guard with microswitch, micrometer saddle stop, rear splash guard, and halogen worklight are all included.
Constructed from 100% cast iron, the PL-1860 engine lathe is built to last and is known for consistent performance and durability even under the most demanding work conditions. Precision ground and hardened ways on the PL-1860 are further protected by a Turcite-B® coating, which offers years of protection to the ways when under the most grueling turning conditions.
The PL-1860 gear head lathe has 12 different speed combinations allowing for speeds between 80 and 2000rpm. A powerful 7.5hp motor allows for heavy cuts to be shaved off of the turned part. This allows for better turned surfaces, faster production, and longer tooling life.
