Cast iron construction, precision machining and great value for money are the key features of this woodturning lathe.
This model also has an upgraded, more powerful, induction motor. It also features a built in digital speed readout to accurately display the rpm speed of the spindle.

Spindles of up to 10″ diameter and 43″ in length can be precisely turned over the bed using the cam-lock sliding tool rest. The sliding tailstock also uses a cam-lock for quick adjustments. The rotating headstock design allows for large diameter bowls of up to 20″, to be turned over the front of the machine. Obtaining the correct speed for cutting is also no problem with the variable speed controller with 10 locator stops. This operates at the turn of a lever. When using the headstock rotated to the front, the extendible tool rest can also be positioned on the left hand side using the extension bed supplied.
