The C6 series is the largest of the small bench lathes produced by SIEG. Not small by any means this machine has a 250mm swing and the 550 model weighs in at a hefty 145kg. Micro-Tech imports only the C6B model which is variable speed provided by a dc motor rated at 550 watts. We believe in leading technology and the motor and control system of this lathe represent that.

The lathe comes in two models, the C6B/400 and the C6B/550, being 400mm and 500mm between centres respectively. Self-act provided on longitudinal axis.

The lathe is supplied fully equiped with 3 and 4 jaw chucks, faceplate, dead centres, fixed and travelling steadies , QCTP, and threading gear set. The standard toolkit provides the basic tools required to service the lathe.
