Pros and cons
This lathe has unique features, which make it, easy to use. This includes the presence of the alpha and the ability to give commands to the machine through the use of numerical dials. The numerical dials are used to make suggestions for the type of gear you want to use instead of manually changing the gears. This is a great advantage that all mechanics should take advantage of and get the machine. In addition, the machine has a powerful characteristic. This has the ability to change the thread easily quick easy. It has been manufactured so that instead of having to change gears so as to select the thread you make a selection on a thread chart by rotating an alpha and making numerical dial on the quick change gearbox.
The machine has both tow normal sets of jaws and a reversible jaw which is used to perform the treading duty. The number dials and the alpha makes the work easy as the user does not have to change the gears but just press a number command and the gear are automatically changed.
None of these machines has gotten any negative review so far.
