14" Tool Room Lathe - Summit Machine Tool Manufacturing Corp
Summit 14" Tool Room Lathe

The Summit 14" Lathe combines accuracy, simplicity and affordability to bring you a proven industry leader. Tested under the most demanding work conditions, the Summit 14" turns rings around other lathes in their class.

Summit 14" lathes have just the right amount of engineering to afford simplicity of operation, coupled with plain and simple rugged reliability. In addition, built in safety features like the safety clutch in the apron that kicks out the feed and the feed/threading safety interlock eliminating the simultaneous engagement of the feed and threading motion, place these machines in a field of their own -- unparalleled in performance.

A few of the outstanding features of the 14" lathes are a cross ribbed headstock for added strength and stability, with anti-friction mounted shafts and dynamically balanced components; hardened and ground alloy steel gears, shafts and splines, and an oversized precision chrome alloy spindle with a big 2-1/4" thru hole that is mounted in double row angular contact thrust bearings and 2 double row roller bearings. These large spindle bearings give the 14" greater radial and thrust capacities ensuring very precise turning capabilities.

Available in 40" and 60" center distances, the 14" lathes have 14-1/2" swing over the bed, 9" swing over the cross slide, and 18-3/4" swing in the gap. They also feature hardened and precision ground bed ways on a heavy one-piece close grain cast bed that is fully ribbed for maximum stability and even thermal expansion. Standard on every machine is a quick-change gearbox for cutting Metric, Module and Diametral Pitch threads as well as standard American threads.

Key Features:
  • Hardened & ground inserted ways
  • Big 2-1/4" Thru Hole
  • 4 way rapid traverse
  • Feed reversing at the apron
  • Inch/Metric threads
  • Includes complete accessory package
