Standard equipment for the basic model 4000 (metric 4100) lathe includes a powerful 90 VDC motor with electronic speed controller, a 2.75" (70mm) x 6.0" (152mm) crosslide, 15" (381mm) steel bed to allow 8" (203mm) between centers, standard 1-5/8" (41mm) laser engraved aluminum handwheels, pulleys, belt, faceplate, lathe dog, two dead centers, three hexagonal keys, tool post, sharpened high-speed steel cutting tool, eight-foot, three-wire power cord and instruction booklet. This lathe can turn a part up to 3.5" in diameter over the bed or up to 1.88" over the carriage without riser blocks. With an optional riser block, parts up to 6" in diameter can be turned over the bed. The lathe has 8" of space between centers. The electronic speed control allows continuously variable speed control from 70 to 2800 RPM without belt changes. There is a second pulley position available that offers extra torque at low RPM if needed.
