Our CL Series lathe speed controllers are completely pre-wired lathe/ milling machine speed control systems designed around the highly reliable Mitsubishi Electric range of inverter drives, and they are supplied with a new high performance motor.  They are available in a range of sizes starting from 0.5HP to 3.0HP.

So far over 2000 units have been supplied "Worldwide" to Factories, Model engineers, Wood Turners, Small businesses, Universities and Colleges. It's never been a better time to update your lathe to smooth variable speed control

Our CL-Series lathe speed controllers are designed as a direct fit solution for the following machines;

  • MYFORD Series-7 machines including; ML7, Super 7, Myford Speed 10 / Diamond 10, 254
  • Southbend (round bed) lathes.
  • Dore Westbury Milling Machines.
  • WARCO machines - including WMT300/ WMT500, BV-20, 918
  • CLARKE CL1500 / CHESTER "Multi-Purpose Lathes"
  • Tom Senior & Denford Milling Machines......and many other machine tool applications!

Our CL Series lathe speed controllers have a full compliment of industry grade controls located on the top face of the control panel, comprising:

  • START & STOP Pushbuttons
  • Emergency Stop Pushbutton (latching type)
  • Speed Potentiometer adjustment (175 - 1800 RPM motor speed)
  • FORWARD / REVERSE Direction selector
  • RUN / JOG facility   

The speed controllers come supplied with a new 220V AC three phase induction motor, which (in the case of the Myford ML7/ Super 7 & Raglan) will fit straight onto the motor bedplate! Together with the inverter drive this gives a possible motor speed range of 175 - 1800 RPM.

The CL series lathe speed controllers are supplied with a 1.5 metre mains cable, fitted with a moulded 13A mains plug, and the motors come supplied pre-wired with 1.5 metre lead that plugs straight into the bottom of the inverter box. Installation typically takes only fifteen to twenty minutes.
There is no wiring to be done, no guess work and the speed controllers are ready to go!!!

No Surcharge for Credit or Debit card payments.
