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”
