GL 200 Lathe gear



  • Hazard-free and clear demonstration of function of the gears on a lathe


Technical Description

This clearly laid out gear model has all the key features and properties of a workshop lathe. As the functional elements are open to view, all the functions of the gears can be clearly observed. On this model, the motor drive is replaced by a hand wheel with a disc and scale. The action of the gears is thus slow and completely hazard-free. A removable plotter drum simulates the work piece, a plotter pen replaces the cutting tool. All experiments are easy to repeat and offer a wider range of variations.
