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 built in digital speed readout to accurately display the rpm speed of the spindle.
Spindles of up to 14″ diameter and 43″ 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 20″ 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 extendible 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 1MT, 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.
A geared scroll chuck is the only choice. This high precision 4 jaw chuck uses just one T-bar to adjust the jaws which means mounting a workpiece is very simple and you will not run out of hands. The basic chuck has thread size M33 x 3.5 .
