This new model 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 10″ 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 large diameter bowls of up to 20″, to be turned over the front of the machine.
