Intuitive handwheels provide the operator with a fast and easy way to setup a job. Move an axis just like a manual lathe. Great for touching off part zero positions and setting up tool offsets these CENTROID handwheels have a natural feel and can be used in conjunction with the axis Jog buttons on the operators control panel. A center mounted Joy stick allows for easy fast jogging of both the X an Z axis in both directions. The CENTROID dual handwheels can be mounted anywhere on the lathe with the provided sealed mounting box or can be mounted flush into your existing cabinet.
