All the Features to Precision Resurface Automobile And Truck Rotors, Drums, And Flywheels Fast And Accurately

One Cut Finish or initially Adjustable machining Speed- Your choice

Feed carriage speed may be set for one cut finish for very fast machining and high production. If specifications call for a two stage machining, rough cut/finish cut, the operator simply rotates a dial.

Four Arbor Speeds- A Hofmann exclusive! Operator may select any of four arbor speeds for "Like new" Micro Finish results while turning the smallest sub-compact rotor or a truck drum. Selecting the correct speed ensures a superior finish and more carbide cutter life than fixed speed lathes.

Precision Carriage Speed Control- Another Hoffman exclusive! Once carriage speed is set the motor sends a speed sensitive signal to the electronic speed control module. The control module ensures that the exact carriage feed speed is maintained throughout the entire resurfacing, no matter the condition of the friction surface. This is especially useful, ensuring a uniform surface, while turning rotors, drums and flywheels that are scored or contain hard spots.

Heavy, thick ductile iron chassis provides a rugged reliable base for the 401 TruCut™

Quick changeover from disk to drum tools in only seconds.

Innovative design and tooling allows the 401 Trucut to be adapted easily to all existing and future machining applications.

Drive shaft and arbor are supported by extra large tapered roller bearings. Bearings and complete drive train operate in an oil bath - no bushings or old fashioned sleeves to wear out.

Automatic tool carriage shutoff.

A simple arbor drive - only two gears.

High torque brushless permanent split capacitor gear motors. Two separate motors - one to drive each tool carriage.

Optional heavy duty B206 bench is made with 1/8" thick steel and has a built in chip catcher. Provides over 1 foot of working space and gives all kinds of extra room for tooling storage.

Optional B203 backboard provides additional tool storage.

Adjustable deluxe work light.

Top storage space for tools.

Long-life warranty provides full coverage.

Underwriters Laboratories listed and C.S.A. approved.

All Hofmann products are supported worldwide by a dedicated sales and service organization.
