FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Laguna Tools Revo 18|36 Lathe Now Available in 110 V Model
New Model Offers Similar Appeals of 220 V Model at Lower Price
Irvine, California- Catherine Helshoj, Vice President, Laguna Tools, Inc., today announced the introduction of the Revo 18|36 lathe in a 110V 60 Hz 1.5HP model. The new addition brings all of the features of the original Revo 18|36 without the need for 220 V power. The unit is priced at $2,399, a $100 savings over the original unit.
Like the original Revo 18|36, the new unit uses a combination of polished steel bed and cast iron components to provide the ultimate in flatness and vibration-free performance.
The unit also includes a wide variety of other features:
• Cone-shaped headstock allows better access to the back of the work piece and provides a longer
distance between bearings to lower run-out of the spindle
• Ergonomically-angled, anodized aluminum control panel with an attractive blue-hued DRO and
anodized-finished, knurled control knob with rubber ring
• Upgraded ergonomic tool rest with a 6 mm hardened spring steel
• Triple spindle indexing and spring-loaded headstock lock
• Magnetic door for quick access to speed settings
• Precision live and drive center
• Wide range of accessories
• Rugged 1.5 V motor
The Revo 18|36 provides electronic variable speed operation via a variable-frequency drive (VFD) that converts one-phase input to three-phase output, even at low settings, to produce remarkably high torque. RPM are displayed on a digital readout, while a quick release handle allows easy switching from high to low settings. The handles use a cam lock for a firm feel with no deflections. In addition, the unit’s ergonomically designed headstock and tailstock lock handles are located on the back to eliminate workflow interruptions and assure users of perfect alignment between headstocks. Adjustment of the width of the steel shoe allows the headstock and tailstock to be pointed to the left or right.
In announcing the new lathe, Helshoj commented, “We are pleased to offer a unit that brings virtually all the capability of the original Revo 18|36 to a new category of users. The convenience of 110 V will open the door to a new audience.
