Fits Many Mini Metal Lathes.

Sold complete with all the adapters required to install in the original motor location of your spindle drive mini metal lathe.
Allows for complete reinstall of all threading gears and auto feed systems.

Fits mini metal lathes that the drive belt goes directly to the spindle gear.
Does not fit mini metal lathes that have an intermediate shaft (high/low gear). To fit these you would need to purchase one of my systems designed for two speeds. See our Mini Metal Lathe 1 hp Servo Motor 2 speed kit

The horsepower improvement is incredible.
Kinda like replacing the small block with a big block in your Mustang/Camaro muscle car. Just pure power, so much so that you will never use all of it.
This system provides full power at any speed and that includes Spindle RPM's as low as 200 RPM's
Motor and spindle speeds + Reverse:
The motor speed can be programmed and or full range can be achieved with just the speed control knob:
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 100 RPM = Spindle 60 RPM.
Highest speed this one produced: Motor 3,500 RPM = Spindle just over 2,000 RPM's.
Note: it is not recommended to spin the spindle any faster unless you upgrade the factory installed spindle bearings.
Motor Specifications:
  • Watt:           750  (1.0057665666 HP)
  • Voltage:      110V
  • HZ:             60
  • Torque:      10 N.M.
  • RPM:         200 to 4,500 RPM in 10 RPM increments.
                       Note: Manufacturer recommended 500 to 4,000 RPMs
                       My personal testing results: This motor runs best between 300 and 4,500 RPMs.
Ratio of belt drive:
  • 1.6 to 1 (motor turns 1.6 revolutions to every revolution the spindle turns)
