For many precision jobs using a face driver, it is critically important to know the exact force applied to the workpiece by the hydraulic tailstock. Riten (Washington Court House, OH) now allows users to eliminate any guesswork, especially on older machines. The company's new Force Gauge, in conjunction with the tailstock’s hydraulic cylinder pressure reading, accurately calibrates the lathe or grinder to deliver the precise load for faster setup and repeatable, scrap-free production. The liquid-filled, anti-vibration analog gauge displays force from 200 to 6,000 pounds and features dual indicators: the black needle shows actual force at any point in the test procedure, while the red needle becomes permanently set at the highest reading recorded during the period.
