The Bed: Bedways and ribs are welded to a 4½ inch diameter * ¼inch wall tube. The assembly is stress relieved and precision machined. Bedways are offset so chips and debris fall straight thru without sacrificing rigidity. Almost perfect torsional rigidity is achieved - many times more than twin tube or cast iron bed designs.
The Heastock & Spindle: A quick overview of the headstock and spindle features are: 24 position indexing; Spindle lock; Spindle Thread: 1"-8 tpi (inboard) & 3/4"-16 tpi (outboard); Safety Groove in spindle to prevent accessories from unscrewing from the spindle; No. 2 Morse Taper (inboard side); 7/16" thru hole (supports necessary requirements for vacuum chucking)
The spindles is hardened, machined, and contains four bearings. The bearings are no maintenance greased for life. The spindle nose, which holds the front bearings, protrudes approximately 1½ inches in front of the headstock, allowing easy tool manoeuvring when working on the rear side of projects.
The Drive: The drive package is fully electronic variable, through an inverter, with speeds from 0 - 4500 RPM in both forward and reverse. The drive come from a 1HP motor mounted directly below the headstock and the electrical supply to the machine is 220 volts, single phase. The two speed ranges are achieved through a two-step pulley fitted with 6-goove ploy-vee belt drive.
The Tailstock: The tailstock has an 1-1/8" diameter quill with 3" travel. The 4" handwheel and the high lead on this screw allows rapid feeds for drilling. #2 Morse Taper throat.
The Banjo/Toolrest Base: Uses ONEWAY's own proven design that ensures even , powerful clamping anywhere on the bed (PATENT No. 6000447). The sliding cam is supported by a cam support block which rests on a ledge machined in the toolrest base. This sliding cam clamping mechanism ensures tight clamping and smooth operation in every position on the lathe bed.
