Cast iron construction, precision machining and great value for money are the key features of this woodturning lathe.
This new version has an upgraded, more powerful, induction motor and a digital speed readout to accurately display the rpm speed of the spindle.
Spindles of up to 12″ diameter and 36″ in length can be precisely turned over the bed using the cam-lock sliding toolrest. The sliding tail stock also uses a cam-lock for quick adjustments. The rotating headstock design allows for larger diameter work, such as bowl turning, of up to 18″ in diameter, to be turned over the front of the machine. Obtaining the correct speed for cutting is no problem with the variable speed controller with 10 locator stops, which operates at the turn of a lever. When using the headstock rotated to the front, the extendable toolrest can be positioned on the left hand side using the extension bed supplied.
