Does anyone have information on a Seiki 4D automatic lathe. There is one cheap somewhat locally. Trying to figure out some details on what it is. Didnt find much on Google. It appears to be a pre-cnc turret.

A manual capstan lathe ,of conventional design ..............70s jap stuf was all top quality,but its likely to have done a lot of work.........nevertheless,if its cheap enough and it suits you,grab it..........it will be 2 1/2 to 3 ton at least ,and 10 hp /3 phase.......as has been said many times before ....make sure you get sufficient turret tooling to work the machine......this will be roller boxes,grooving tools ,drill holders ,length stops ,and all sorts of fancy stuff to turn hex s and squares.......and a couple of die heads would be nice.
