hi the one you refer me to was the *X-MOD Super Lathe 3 w/ Motor & Carbide V-Block

which i assume is the same as

#1281 Eagle Modified commu-lathe3     


do you know about the if the "comm lathe 4" is suitable for stock motors?


#1393  Eagle Modified commu-lathe4

coz i saw the eagle lath at the track, i not sure what version it was, i asked him about it, and i asked him if it could do stock motors, he said that was a mod lathe. and it "couldnt" do stock.

not sure if his one couldnt do stock coz you need special bit for stock? or maybe he didnt know, he always ran mod only.

doomah,
what country are you in ??
for stock which motors are you using ??
either that guy has no idea what a stock motor is or you guys are running closed endbell stock motors. do they still exist ?
all mod lathes can cut comms on rebuildable stock motors.
trinity
monster stock, PK2K, green machine
reedy
MVP
and epic

but can you post a link to that eagle lathe 4. i looked at the integy site (U.S.) and they dont show a version 4 yet.

hi baih. i live in australia.

yeah we race same stock motors as you... ea, pk2k etc ...

yeah maybe that guy doesnt know what he's taking about.... hes an older guy whos relatively new....

here is the link to the eagle site...the version 4 is the purple one... which is what the old man had (i think)



http://www.eaglemodel.com/en-net/en%...ont03_2_1.html


also it says #1393  Modified commu-lathe4   W/carbon steel bit

I should get the diamond bit aswell? coz the carbon doesnt last long?

thanks

That lathe will definetly work with the motors you run,the things you want to look for are V- block guides, not ball bearing guides,you will want the diamond bit as well but if it comes with the carbide use it first until you get the hang of cutting coms then switch to the diamond bit.

if you can get it with v-blocks for a few dollars more, bet it. just as hyper one says. use the carbide bit first to learn.

This lathe comes with carbide bit but does not come with the motor.

Works well. I haven't had any problems with it cutting stock motors..

You can run this lathe with a Johnson 540 motor and an old 4 cell battery setup. Works perfectly as I use an old Johnson on my Cobra lathe (4volts via my Ice charger). Pay the extra and get the Diamond bit as they last heaps if you handle them carefully. The carbides last around 10-20 cuts, but don't give as nice a finish. Cost around $5 to resharpen
