The W824 midi lathe continues to be a best seller. It’s size is such that it can accomplish most of the projects turners are likely to try and is Charnwood’s largest lathe that can be moved off the bench when not in use as its size and weight makes it manageable to move. Please remember that it is 32KG and care should be taken when lifting to avoid personal injury. It might be best to get a helping hand when moving the W824. It has been further developed to now include an indexing system on the headstock spindle as well as more robust electronics, specifically designed for UK voltage.
The bed of the lathe is one-piece precision ground cast iron giving 14″ between centres when working with our new heavy duty centres, which are supplied as standard. The bowl turning capacity of 12″ diameter over the bed, requires a very low speed which is achieved using a converter and a DC motor. A clear LCD display shows the current RPM.
The tool rest banjo is a cam-lock design for rapid adjustments with all metal components. The tool rest itself is our ever popular round bar made from hardened steel
The headstock is hollow centred to allow for easy tool removal, the tailstock is also hollow and has automatic centre removal.
