1993 Hardinge HLV-H Tool Room Precision Lathe

This machine was purchased from the original owner who had custom ordered it in white from the factory. This is a late model lathe that has many desirable features such as a Fagor Innova 40i color 3 axis DRO, hardened and ground cross slide way inserts, full coolant and chip guard, teflon carriage coating, 7″ wide flame hardened & ground lathe bed, Hardinge 4 degree taper lock spindle and much more.

This is a very clean machine but it did not come to me that way. I have spent over 60 hours disassembling, cleaning, servicing and testing this machine. Not only does it look nice everything on this machine is functioning 100%. I have treated this machine as if it was my own. This is not a machine rebuilder shiny paint junk machine. This machine is under power and can be run and tested on site. The spindle is whisper quiet even at full speed of 3000 RPM. I cut a test bar and it was 0.0003″ taper over 7 inches which could even be improved upon. The gearbox shifts easily and functions as it should. The DC motor power feed works well and all apron clutches function as they should.
