New equipment offers user-friendly, two-in-one service for rotors and drums KENOSHA, Wis., Apr. 26, 2002 -Snap-on has introduced the EEBR308A Combination Rotor and Drum Brake Lathe for technicians who are reconditioning brake drums, disc brake rotors and flywheels. The easy-to-use lathe provides accurate finishes for drums and rotors for nearly all makes of automobiles and light trucks. The unit operates at one spindle speed and feed rate to offer simple operation and eliminate unnecessary choices for technicians. The Combination Rotor and Drum Brake Lathe handles drums or rotors up to 100 pounds using a one-inch arbor. With its carbide insert tool bits, the lathe makes positive rake cuts and consistently removes the right amount of metal for a fine finish in one cut. The Combination Rotor and Drum Brake Lathe services rotors and drums without lengthy changeover procedures between the two functions. Separate feed motors power the unit's twin cutter tool and boring bar independently and offer a high degree of reliability. Dovetail tool slides with adjustable gibs are protected with felt wipers to provide longer service life. The twin cutter tool reconditions both brake rotor surfaces simultaneously. The tool is adjustable with an aluminum micrometer dial for precision cuts. Technicians use rapid traverse handwheels, which speeds set-up of the unit. An overhead light and a top tool storage tray help technicians see better and secure tools while they work. A clear, plastic shield provides safety during rotor work. The Combination Rotor and Drum Brake Lathe is also available in two complete packages (EEBR308ABP, EEBR308ADP) that include a heavy-duty workbench with a tool board and a full range of adapters. Both packages include adapter sets that accommodate hubbed and hubless rotors and drums.
