Simplified Small Batch Turning.

Designed by toolmakers for toolmakers, the Fryer ET-TR Series Toolroom Lathes provide rugged construction and high accuracy in a compact toolroom lathe. The Easy Turn is easier to use than a conventional lathe yet offers the productivity of a CNC. Time consuming manual set-ups for threading, chamfers, and contours are eliminated by the Easy Turn’s handle driven “Do One” cycles and electronic stops. Multi-mode operations allow manual use, semi-auto use and full CNC operation. This flexibility is perfect for repair shops, tool and die, prototype and job shops alike.
