"This is a terrific opportunity to acquire a quality, precision lathe at a great price."
Amelia, OH (PRWEB) March 21, 2014
LeBlond Ltd., a supplier of OEM service parts and LeBlond lathes, is offering a promotion until May 15, 2014 on its RKL Series manual lathes where customers can save up to 20% off list price or as much as $6,500 on new equipment.
LeBlond Ltd. is a descendant of the original machine tool company that R.K. LeBlond founded in 1887. With its line of new discounted RKL Series lathes, LeBlond seeks to continue a trusted legacy in manual machines built on legendary models such as the LeBlond Regal introduced nearly 40 years ago.
The three current, discounted models are the RKL 15 x 60 EVS lathe at $21,700, the RKL 15 x 60 Gear Head lathe at $19,500 and the RKL 19 x 60 EVS lathe at $26,100.
The LeBlond RKL-1560V features a 15" swing and 60" distance between centers. The machine has a hardened, ground and dynamically balanced spindle with bed ways that are induction and precision ground. The 2V bed design provides rigidity that assures accuracy and maximum stability, hallmarks of the LeBlond name.
The LeBlond RKL-1560GH lathe offers similar features to the EVS models just with a traditional geared head headstock instead of electronic variable speed.
The LeBlond RKL-1960V has a 20" swing with a 60" distance between centers for those who need to machine larger diameter stock. The two LeBlond manual EVS lathes offer varying headstock gear ranges. The RKL-1560V supplies a high torque or horsepower in two ranges – low (20 to 400 RPM) and high (400-2500 RPM). The RKL-1960V provides three headstock gear ranges – low (30-125 RPM), medium (125-450 RPM) and a high range (450-2200 RPM).
LeBlond decided to introduce the lathe promotion in response to the increased momentum of manufacturing in the United States and globally. “This is a terrific opportunity to acquire a quality, precision lathe at a great price,” said LeBlond Ltd. President Jon Tallman.
