"In order to meet our customer and client demand, we have selected the best HLV-H clone and applied our renowned craftsmanship to produce a modern machine worthy to be called a Hardinge clone. Babin Machine offers insight and expertise that no other seller can when it comes to new precision TML-5C toolroom lathes."

Babin Machine Sales announced the continued availability of its high precision 5C style toolroom lathe models: TML-5Cem with STD threading gearbox and TML-5Cst with USA made servo threading system, both designed for the modeling, fast prototyping and low production shop environments.

Features of the TML-5C lathes include: Hardinge style wide dovetail bedplate design, direct drive 5 HP spindle to 3,500 RPM, 5C lever collet closer and high precision .0001" toolroom accuracy.
