Here’s a great video from one of our happy customers at Harvester College, demonstrating a bench to pedestal drill conversion. The equipment for their brand new engineering facility was supplied by Modern Tools.

Featured in the video are the following products:

  • LUX 1440 Lathes
  • FIRST LC 1 1/2 VS Milling Machine
  • Techplus RIC-D25 Drilling Machines
  • Siegmund 2400x1200mm plasma-nitrided welding table.

West Coast Customs are a car modification and fabrication shop based in Corona, California. They’re widely known as the team behind the hit show “Pimp My Ride” and have completed thousands of original and extreme modifications to cars of all kinds.

One of the biggest obstacles they face are the tight timelines associated with their work. They need their fabrication process to be fast, but also extremely accurate. When it came time to choose a new fabrication and welding table for their business, they chose Siegmund.

Their new Siegmund welding table has become the heart of their fabrication shop. The unique tooling system saves hundreds of hours of work, as they’re able to take their designs from CAD and start building them immediately on the table. Best of all, the precision of Siegmund welding tables and tools means they know straight-away that their measurements are accurate.

The enormous strength of these tables is also important, as they often need to support the weight of an entire car that they’re working on.

Modern Tools have just delivered a Hwacheon model HL720x2000mm heavy duty lathe, fitted with extensive safety equipment including:
Repar sliding headstock guard
• Repar roller blind style feed and lead screw cover
• “E” stop on saddle for extra safety

Other additions included a Fagor digital readout and an Algra-Rapidue quick change toolpost.


“After purchasing our first Hwacheon lathe in September 2012, the feedback I received from the operators was that they were very happy with the performance of the machine.

In early 2014 we needed to replace an old Colchester lathe and looked at the Hwacheon Model HL720X2000mm. Knowing the performance of the last machine we purchased, our decision to purchase a second machine was purely made on quality, reliability and the after sales service provided by Modern Tools”
