Colchester Master Center Lathe

One of the three lathes we house in Powermax is our Colchester Master Center Lathe. This lathe is the smallest of our set.

Our Colchester Master lathe is operated manually meaning that we operate the device directly while working on an item rather than a CNC lathe were it is programmed and then the work carried out by the computer program.

The speed of rotation of the chuck has various gear settings allowing for a wide range of spinning speeds to be achieved.

This lathe is mainly used for turning small work pieces such as:

  • Bushes
  • Pins
  • Bosses
  • Facing
  • Turning
