Power is supplied to 1624V lathe through a standard 240v plug. An inverter then converts to 3 phase electricity. Therefore feeding the motor. The advantage of this system is to allow very fine control of the rotation speed and keep the same high level or torque, even at the lowest speed of just 100rpm. A digital display gives an accurate speed reading at all times.
You can position the headstock anywhere along the length of the bed and therefore rotated around to any angle. As a result a more convenient position that can always be found for any bowl turning project. The extension arm of the Tool rest can 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.
