These are used Hardinge tool slides purchased from the surplus used machine market, rebuilt, and put on a base manufactured by us to accommodate the modern rose engine such as ours.
The base is made with a dovetail slide to match the Hardinge lathe bed allowing for adjustment. It also utilizes T slots across the bottom in both directions to allow for easy clamping.
The bed is made of steel and the base is made of aluminum to reduce weight.
The rebuild on the cross slide includes removing wear from the ways by milling, grinding and scraping and replacing any worn bearings. The slide is also completely dismantled and cleaned.
The double nut system used by Hardinge insures a minimum in backlash. The slide is guaranteed to operate smoothly along the entire travel.
Hardinge produced the best compounds ever made in the USA, and they sell new for over $5000.
The toolpost is not included, but a T nut for mounting the tool post is included along with a bolt to match.
