LeBlond Lathes

Known for making high-quality machines, LeBlond claims to not produce “Toolroom-standard” machines but rather better lathes. LeBlond did more than make empty claims by producing highly reliable lathes, some of which lasted more than forty years. The US government uses them in their military repair shops and made heavy use of LeBlond lathes during World War II. Great Britain was one of the biggest importers of these Lathes during World War II. The lathes have gradually gotten lighter over time. The heaviest of the lathes were around the 1920′s, and LeBlond manufactured some of their lightest lathes in the present. With such a rich history of making high-quality machines, LeBlond will be around for the foreseeable future. More info: LeBlond Lathe
