New lathe at RogueFab - 1985 Takisawa TSL 800D tool room engine lathe
We're tearing into this tool room engine lathe. It is a super low hour 1985 Takisawa TSL-800D with the 2 speed option. It had some caked up oil/grease causing some issues and a couple broken parts from careless people who moved it.
These were designed in Japan and made in Japan until the late 70s when production moved to Taiwan. They are great machines.
Specs are approx... 5 HP, 3 phase 230V, mitutoyo DRO, 14" x 40" (from memory).
