This is the most efficient machine for second operation work on miniature and microminiature parts. The small size, sensitivity, extreme accuracy and ease of set-up of these lathes enables them to relieve larger, more costly machines of the very inefficient burden of machining small work. Levin Turret Lathes are specially designed and constructed to meet the demands required in the production of small precision parts. The increased efficiency and greatly improved accuracy resulting from the use of small machines of this type can result in substantial savings of production times while improving the quality of work. The Turret Lathe can be equipped with a wide variety of standard tooling which greatly reduces both the time and difficulty of setting up the machine in comparison to larger equipment. These machines can be ordered as a simple Turret Lathe without any bench, cabinet or drive unit; they can be obtained mounted on a Formica- top bench, or they can be furnished mounted on a welded steel cabinet. Regardless of the mounting or drive, the basic machine is the same.

HEADSTOCK - The headstock is fully enclosed with special precision preloaded angular contact ball bearings. The front bearings consist of a preloaded pair of angular contact bearings with a single radial bearing in the rear. The spindle is fully hardened from end to end. On headstocks using Type 3C collets, the headstock is furnished with a special adapter and drawbar assembly which enables one to use the more accurate and sensitive Type D collets for holding work under 8.0 MM diameter.

LEVER COLLET CLOSER - A lever-operated collet closer is furnished as standard equipment on all models. For production work it provides a positive collet closing arrangement that can be operated either with the spindle at rest or in motion. Collet gripping force can quickly be adjusted throughout the full range. The operating lever is conveniently placed so that only a slight movement to the left is required to close the collet. A handwheel on the collet closer enables the operator to manually rotate the spindle for indicating or inspecting small precision parts.

DOUBLE TOOL CROSS SLIDE - For fast, accurate turning, the front tool position of this unit is fitted with a rack and pinion lever-operated slide which may be set at any angle. The rear tool block has been made extremely rigid to provide excellent support for an inverted tool. It can be used to hold a cut-off tool close to the collet. Adjustable stops are provided on both slides. Convenient T-slots are provided to hold special tooling when required.

TURRET - The 6-position, self-indexing turret is provided with independently adjustable stops for each turret position. Sensitivity and accuracy have been built into this unit to make it suitable for production work on the smallest of parts. The turret head is supported on preloaded ball thrust bearings. All turret holes have been bored to size from the headstock on the same lathe and they will accept the entire range of standard Levin turret tooling. Turret holes are 1/2" in diameter.

MOTOR DRIVE UNITS - Three standard drives are available for these lathes. A separate 1/8 HP variable speed drive is available for a rear bench top mounting configuration where high torque is not essential. Lathes furnished on Formica-top steel benches and lathes furnished on steel cabinets are supplied complete with a 1/3 HP SCR drive having IR drop compensation. All drive units provide infinitely variable spindle speeds from 0 to 5000 RPM with dynamic braking, foot switch start and stop, and full overload protection for use on 115 V, 60 Hz, 1 Ph AC electrical service.

CHIP TRAY - A Stainless Steel chip tray with coolant drain is included with all bench-mounted lathes, and is available at extra cost for lathes ordered without a bench or cabinet.

COOLANT SYSTEM - An optional coolant system is available for use with these lathes. The electrical system of each motor drive unit is pre-wired at the factory to accept a standard Levin coolant system. An independent control switch on the control unit permits simultaneous operation of the lathe and coolant system when the foot switch is depressed.

CABINET - The cabinet provides the best possible support for the Turret Lathe. Convenient access to all storage compartments has been provided with doors at the front and rear of the cabinet. The entire coolant system can easily be removed for thorough cleaning whenever required. All necessary wiring for both the coolant system and drive control are included with all machines on a cabinet.
