Replace your manual lathe today, part exchange available

Tool rooms and precision engineering companies have relied for years on manual lathes designed and built in the 1950s and 1960s. As a leading UK machine tool repair specialist, we're called on all the time to repair, upgrade and update original manual machines such as the Colchester Mascot and Colchester Mastiff.

These workhorses have kept British industry turning for over 40 years and refurbished examples can still command second hand prices of more than £10,000. Replacement parts can cost hundreds of pounds and UK companies spend thousands keeping old machines going past their usual working lives.

The Pinacho SC range of manual lathes is the cost effective alternative to life-expired manual lathes. Built in Europe to CE standards by a company that is constantly evolving production methods and components to use the latest in new technology, the Pinacho range are built to last and guaranteed to deliver precision and performance.

Direct CNC can offer the Pinacho SC range in the UK with prices starting from just £10,650 (base price).

The largest machine in the range (the Pinacho SC-325 x 3000) has a 652mm swing over bed, 3,000mm distance between centres and an 80mm spindle bore and is available from just £19,950. That's a large brand new heavy duty manual lathe for under £20,000.

All of our Pinacho manual lathes come with a three jaw chuck as standard and prices include delivery, installation and training as well as a three year electrical and mechanical warranty.

We'll also take your Colchester or any other make of manual lathe in part exchange
