The LittleMachineShop.com model 7500 HiTorque 8.5x20 Bench Lathe is the best in its class. No other metal lathes in this size offer power cross feed.

The 1000 Watt brushless spindle drive motor provides tremendous low-end torque. And you can vary the speed from 100 rpm to 2000 rpm continuously in both directions. There are no gears to shift. The updated control panel allows you to stop and then restart the lathe at a pre-selected speed.

The cross feed and compound rest dials are graduated in 0.001" and advance 0.050" per turn. The metal lathe is equipped with a 4-way indexing tool post set for 10 mm tools.

A reversible 2 mm pitch lead screw provide extended threading capability. You can create every American Standard Unified class 2A inch screw thread from 6 to 80 threads per inch, and you can create every American Standard Metric class 6h thread from 0.25 to 4 mm pitch with the change gears that are included. All the gears on this lathe are metal.

The LittleMachineShop.com model 7500 HiTorque 8.5x20 Bench Lathe is a version of the SIEG SC4 bench lathe.

*NOTE* We ship machines only to the US and Canada.

Chris Chris' Tips
View a comparison of the specifications for our lathes.

These machines have genuine NSK bearings. Getting genuine bearings in China is not easy as there are so many fakes around. We had SIEG contact the NSK factory to see where to purchase genuine NSK bearings that they could count on as not being fakes.

The HiTorque 8.5x20 Bench Lathes offer extended threading capabilities. Here's a document that explains how to set the change gears on the HiTorque Bench Lathes.

Here are data sheets for the machines that we sell.

Compatibility

We normally ship truck orders a day or two after we receive the order. For local orders transportation usually takes no more than a day or two. For orders going across county or over water the transportation time can be up to a week or longer.

We add the following shipping cost to your order total:

Additional Notes

  • Contact and delivery. Ensure you choose the correct type of delivery, have a dedicated contact person/number, and are ready on day of delivery. Freight companies charge an additional fee if delivery exceeds 30 minutes.
     
  • Only one shipping charge for entire pallet (up to 700 pounds total). The shipping charges shown above cover the cost of shipping the machine and anything else that you purchase with it, including a second machine, stand, tooling, and accessories.
     
  • A "commercial address" has a sign with company name, a public entrance and posted hours of operation. If you are running a business at your residence without a public entrance and posted company name and hours of operation it is considered a residence and a not commercial address.
     
  • A "limited access" designation is required for "Secured Locations" (schools, colleges, universities, university hospitals, military bases, government facilities, etc). Please provide accurate details on delivery in special instructions.
     
  • "Terminal Pickup" allows for pickup at local terminal. If there is not a terminal within 50 miles (or 1 hour), we will confirm with you that you still want Terminal Pickup. Terminals tend to be near highways (usually miltiple intersecting) and industrial centers. Only certain terminals allow pick-up.
     
  • "Residential delivery" does not include moving machine into home/garage/workshop or any setup. Delivery is to start of driveway on the street that the delivery truck can access. (See inside delivery below.)

 

For delivery to Alaska, Hawaii, or Puerto Rico

We will check with several trucking companies to get the best price and then call for your approval before we ship.

 

Canadian Shipments

Truck Freight shipping to Canada involves 3 distinct charges in addition to the product costs. (All amounts are in US Dollars, see the current mid-market exchange rate.)

  1. Canadian Provincial Taxes (GST, PST, HST) depending on which province the shipment is going to. This will be 5% - 15% added to total sales amount depending on province (Canadian Sales Tax).
     
  2. Hemisphere Customs Brokerage which handles all customs clearance requirements. This is a flat fee of $108 on any shipment.
     
  3. Truck Freight from Southern California to destination in Canada. This is generally $300-$500 for residential liftgate delivery and appointment for single machine + tooling orders. Delivery to a terminal for pick-up or a commercial location with loading capabilities can reduce this cost substantially.
