The Lathe is cast iron construction, precision machined and is also great value for money. 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 also allows for larger diameter work, such as bowl turning. Bowls of up to 18″ in diameter are therefore able to be turned over the front of the machine. Obtaining the correct speed for cutting is no problem either. The variable speed controller with 10 locator stops 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.
Supplied with hollow headstock and tailstock suitable for long hole boring, floorstand, NVR switch, 225mm long toolrest with 25mm shank, 4 prong drive centre 2MT, revolving tail centre 2MT, 6″ diameter faceplate, knock out bar, cable and plug.
The optional wheelbase is an excellent addition for anybody who needs to move this lathe around the workshop.
