Key Features


Power to the  Charnwood 1624V Floorstanding Variable Speed Lathe 1500w 3ph Motor is supplied to the lathe through a standard 240v plug. An inverter then converts to 3 phase electricity to feed the motor. Therefore the advantage of this system is to allow very fine control of the rotation speed and also keep the same high level or torque. This is also even at the lowest speed of just 100rpm. A digital display also gives an accurate speed reading at all times.

The headstock on Charnwood 1624V Floorstanding Variable Speed Lathe 1500w 3ph Motor can be positioned anywhere along the length of the bed. It can also be rotated around to any angle. Therefore  a convenient position can always be found for any bowl turning project. The Tool rest has an extension arm which can therefore be positioned on either side of the headstock. You can therefore turn bowls in 2 different ways: over the bed or in front of the bed.

All three elements: headstock, tool rest & tailstock, slide along the bed and are locked into place with a strong cam lock lever, fitted with a comfort grip.

The cast iron floor stand ensures vibration free running. It also has brackets should you wish to attach a storage shelf, and it also has floor fixing points. There is also a tool storage rack to keep all the accessories handy and ready to use.


Supplied with:


drive centre, tail centre, 150mm diameter faceplate, knock out bar, floor stand, cable and plug.
