Brake disc/drum lathe

Product: Brake disc/drum lathe

Description: The ruggedly built brake lathe is capable of faster, easier and more accurate rotor/flywheel and drum/flywheel resurfacing than any other brake lathe in its class. Infinitely adjustable feed rates allow you to easily modify cut speeds with the simple turn of a dial. Now you can reduce or increase the cut-time for the best finish results, whether you’re speeding through an initial rough cut or a single-pass micro-finish. This complete lathe package includes the lathe, a sturdy bench and large tool storage backboards, so you can hang all your adapters within close reach.


Simple, durable, trouble-free

Easy to operate and durable enough to withstand the everyday abuses of a busy shop environment. A super-heavy, hardened, forged cast iron body combined with precision ground components and massive “floating spindles” make this one of the most dependable and trouble-free machines you will ever own.

Transmission-free, dual servo motors

The absence of gear-driven mechanical drives and variable-speed transmission devices reduces service and repair costs dramatically over the unit’s lifetime. The revolutionary RL8500 brake lathe uses independent DC servo motors to control the cross feed and spindle feed drives, eliminating the need for complex mechanical gear boxes and transmissions typically found on mechanically-driven brake lathes.

Heavy-duty bench included

While others charge extra, we include this sturdy steel bench with large tool storage backboards, so you can hang all your adapters within arms’ reach. A durable multicompartment toolbox provides storage for all adapters and accessories. Large chip “catch” funnel and chip bin keeps work area clean and safe.

Easily change from rotors to drums (and back)

A convenient quick-change tool-head design allows operators to quickly change the setup from drums to rotors and vice-versa. Upfront controls are designed for minimal operator movement. A handy tool tray is located near the front of the machine, so you can keep your favorite brake lathe tools nearby.

Fully equipped tooling package comes standard

Includes micro-dial twin tool cutter, boring bar, inside floating adapters, self-aligning spacer, outside floating adapter, centering cones, spacers, double-taper adapters, hubless adapters, carbide cutting tools, 6-sided carbide cutting inserts, 1” arbor, arbor nut, back-load spring, spare bulb for lamp, illustrated instruction manual, wrenches, high-impact anti-vibration bands and plastic storage case.
