The 15L Slant-PRO CNC Lathe can accommodate workholdings of various sizes due to its 5C collet taper insert and accessories, which are compatible with all lathes, but designed specifically with the 15L Slant-PRO in mind. This includes both headstock and tailstock options.
- 5C Collet: With the 5C collet chuck taper insert secured in the spindle with the 5C lever closer, the lathe features all the convenience, strength, and precision associated with the chuck, whether youíre woodworking or metalworking.
- D1 Workholding: Easily remove the taper insert and the lathe becomes compatible with D1 workholding, including direct mount chuck and jaw sets. This ability to maintain precision while turning larger-diameter pieces - whether they be square or circular - is crucial.
