The DBL Star, a Korean made off car brake lathe that combines affordability with reliability, is available for heavy truck and passenger vehicles.
The DBL Star off car brake lathe has been sold in Australia for over a decade, with thousands of units working right around the country.
Interequip says its success can be tied back to its cost-effective price coupled with outstanding disc and drum finishes.
Entering the market in the disc only form, it is reportedly less than half the cost of a comparable on-car lathe, and in the disc and drum lathe it is said to be slightly over half the cost of an on-car lathe.
Pricing includes the bench, lathe, chip tray, hood and accessories to start machining straight away.
Made in Korea, Interequip says this product has built a reputation for reliability and ease of use.
Featuring a LED light array built into the clear hood so you can still see in low light conditions, it also has an LED for drum use.
The lathe features adjustable V-gibs to adjust out any future wear, and Interequip states that one of the features owners tell it they like the most is the switchable cross slide.
Interequip explains that it is impossible to engage both slides at once and the spindle feed is infinitely variable which results in first rate finishes.
Further it says possibly the greatest part of the lathe is the bit you can’t see, and that is the size of the motor which has a built-in gear drive coupled with a Gilmer type belt, similar to what a super charger uses.
It explains that the belt helps to isolate vibrations and the gear drive increases the motor torque. Three jaw chuck and flywheel cutter are also available.
