I can’t foresee a watchmaker needing more than the 750 watt model. In accordance with GlockCNC.com, they could sell you the lathe complete with their. Typically, the OEM Taig lathe uses a very tiny dovetail system for it’s headstock. GlockCNC.com uses a much thicker chuck of aluminum with no”air gap” between the headstock and the bed. This allows for better energy handling from vibration. Next, let’s look at the headstock itself. If you put the OEM headstock right next to the GlockCNC headstock, you immediately seem the difference. The GlockCNC casing has far more metal inside and allows for bigger OD bearing. This, then, allows for a larger spindle to be utilized. Let’s talk about those spindles for a watchmakers lathe.

For those in CROSSVILLE, AL They offer ER25, ER32, ER40 as well as the enormous ER50 collet chuck spindles. The through hole is from .30″ to .89″, depending upon which ER spindle arbor you choose. I’d suspect that most watch makers will be using the ER25 or ER32. This allows for very precision workpiece. Additionally, the collets are available anywhere. GlockCNC offers .0002″ TIR collets (which is about as precise as you’ll get). On top of that, they also have adjustable ER nuts to dial out any remaining runout. Of course, when you work piece isn’t straight, then it will make it a challenge to dial out the runout. But, what can be done is make your cut, turn the piece around then use the adjustable nut to dial out the TIR.
