Also note: Just because an items shows 0 or 1 in stock does not mean we do not have 20.
Just ask by the contact link on the bottom of all pages. We will than check stock and orders and advise on when we can ship before you order.

This is not a bolt on upgrade.
It is a difficult conversion and requires additional machine work.

See you tube videos before you buy:
  1. Instalation of servo motor upgrade
  2. Set up of lahe before even trying to upgrade the motor.
  3. Part 3 black box control unit comming soon.
Fits: See images and ask questions.
This is a prototype now instaled by me on my demo lathe
and one other customer who has a full machine shop.

Sold with most of the adapters required to install in the original motor location of the 8 X 14.
As seen in the above images. and in the you tube videos.

Lead time is up to 7 days.
Each one is custom built when you order:
When the build is complete, it will be tested for 20 minuets.
Any defects found during testing will require a complete new build. This insures you likely will not have to deal with returns and exchanges due to manufacturer defects.
All parts required to build are In stock. That means if it is listed as available, it is because we have enough parts to build at least two. We also stock extra parts in case of warranty

The horsepower improvement is incredible.
Kinda like replacing the small block with a big block in your Mustang/Camaro muscle car. 
This system provides full power at any speed
Motor and spindle speeds + Reverse:
The motor speed can be programmed and or full range can be achieved with just the speed control rotary knob on the controller:
Speed control programming only requires a few easy steps.
Reverse is simple, just hold the yellow button for a few seconds.
Programming includes the ability to set bottom and top RPM range separately. In other words you can program the system to run the spindle at any speed or range of speeds you choose (see below).
Slowest speed achievable: Motor 300 RPM
Highest speed this one produced: Motor 3500 RPM.


Motor Specifications:
  • Watt:           900W  (1.0 HP)
  • Voltage:      110V
  • HZ:             60
  • Torque:      11 N.M.
  • RPM:         300 to 3,500 RPM in 100 RPM increments.
                       Note: Manufacturer recommended 500 to 3.500 RPM's
  • My personal testing results: This motor runs best between 300 and 4,500 RPM's.


Resulting Spindle Speeds:
Ratio is 1.6 to 1.

300 RPM motor = 187 RPM Spindle
3,500 RPM motor + 2,187 Spindle
