We will be closed Monday, July 4, in celebration of our nation's independence. (Our forebears voted Leave 240 years ago.) Orders received over the weekend will ship on Tuesday.
Shipments to Canada
Canada Post recently sent a notice to their customers regarding a possible service disruption on or around July 2, 2016, as a result of a labor dispute. Canada Post is warning customers that:
“While there is still time to reach new agreements, customers should take precautions as a labor disruption remains a possibility.”
While it's not clear what "precautions" you can take, if you need your order in a hurry, you might consider using UPS instead of USPS/Canada Post until after things settle down. Check here for updates on the situation.
And in the meantime, Happy Canada Day!
HiTorque Machines In Stock
We have these HiTorque machines in stock and ready for shipment.
With its 500W brushless DC drive system, the 5100 HiTorque 7x16 Mini Lathe has the most low speed torque of any mini lathe. And features like the 4" 3-jaw chuck, cam-lock tailstock, full half-nuts, and apron gear shield make this lathe unique.
The 5200 HiTorque 7x16 Deluxe Mini Lathe incorporates all the goodness of our 5100 mini lathe, plus it includes an all-steel wedge-style quick change tool post set with five tool holders. In addition, the 5200 features digital readouts on the cross slide and compound rest, and it has metal handwheels instead of plastic.
The HiTorque 8.5x20 Bench Lathe features a power cross feed--a unique feature in lathes of this size. The 1000W brushless spindle drive motor provides tremendous low-end torque and continuously variable speed from 100-2000 RPM in both directions.
The HiTorque Micro Mill features a powerful 250W brushless spindle drive motor, which offers tremendous low-end torque, speeds from 100-5000 RPM, and no gears or belts to shift. (No gears also makes it the quietest in its class.) And at 15.7"x5.7", the mill table is huge! It's available with a 2 Morse Taper spindle (model 4700) or an ER-16 spindle (model 4660).
The Model 3990 HiTorque Mini Mill features an R8 spindle for wide tooling compatibility and a solid column for increased rigidity and reduced chatter. This mini mill has a larger X-Y table and more power (500W brushless DC drive) than its competitors.
The HiTorque Bench Mill is a step up in size, rigidity, and power compared to a mini mill. It provides a larger table (23.4" x 5.5"), more travel, and more horsepower (750W). The HiTorque Bench Mill incorporates a true quill and drill press-style handles for easy drilling. A button on the end of each handle reverses the spindle to make tapping easy. The control panel includes a digital spindle speed display.
Each of these machines is the best in its class, with unique features not available elsewhere. There is finally a Mini Lathe and Mini Mill worthy of the LittleMachineShop.com brand.
