About the Lathe 8-direction Milling Column Upgrade

If you already have a vertical milling column for your lathe and you want to upgrade it to include multi-direction machining capabilities, you can purchase this lathe vertical milling upgrade. Your existing column bed is removed from the old rectangular column base and reinstalled on the column ram of the new, round column base.

It is also available with the mill column bed included as P/N 3580.

The 8-direction Vertical Milling Column includes a round column base with a key slot that fits over the headstock attachment pin on the lathe and is secured with a set screw. Beyond the adapter base, the column is identical to the column used on the Model 2000 mill.

The standard vertical milling column and deluxe vertical milling column provide Z-axis travel plus headstock rotation. The multi-direction column adds four more directions of movement to provide for some very sophisticated milling operations.

The improper use of machine tools and their accessories can result in serious injury. Before using this tool, thoroughly read the instructions and make sure you understand its proper and safe use.


Always wear safety glasses when operating machine tools.
