This is the basic machine of the Levin line,
an extremely accurate and sensitive lathe designed to meet the
exacting demands necessary in machining miniature
and microminiature parts. It is the standard for toolrooms
and mechanical laboratories requiring the most modern
facilities for producing small parts involving delicate
operations with extreme accuracy. With proper tooling,
these lathes make it possible to manufacture parts
which would otherwise be difficult or impossible to
fabricate on larger lathes.
The Instrument Lathe can be equipped with appropriate
tooling for use as a Toolmakers' Lathe, Turret Lathe,
Micro-Drilling Machine, or where indicated, it can be
tooled up so as to perform the functions of all three
types. These lathes can be ordered as a simple lathe
without any bench, cabinet or drive unit; they can be
obtained mounted on a Formica-top bench, or cabinet.
Regardless of the mounting or drive, the basic machine
is the same.
