Whether cutting O-ring grooves, repairing turbine spindles or fixing an out-of-round gear seat area on the shaft of a high-speed production machine, a CLIMAX portable lathe can pay for itself on its first job. Our family of lathes bolts onto the end of a shaft to re-turn shafts and roll journals from 1.5 inches to 24 inches (38 to 610 mm). Some models can work in quarters as tight as 7 inches (177.8 mm) of radial clearance, while the PL4000 has the ability to machine a tapered shaft. Pneumatic power is standard, with optional electric power available on several models.
