The Power Lift system for the Little Machine Shop 5500 mill functionally replaces the Z-Axis manual hand wheel that is used to raise and lower the mill head.
- The Power Lift is controlled by the motor control toggle switch. This switch is mounted to the system plate and has three momentary positions: up, off, and down.
- The motor is a 110V AC powered reversible gear motor which has an intermittent duty cycle and has been tailored to the specific requirements of the Power Lift.
Using the Power Lift system is really easy. Just press the switch up or down and release, and you are done. It is much faster than using the hand wheel, and much easier on your shoulder.
