Cast iron construction, precision machining and great value for money are the key features of this woodturning lathe.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. 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.

Customer Reviews

By on
"I was disappointed with the quality of the lathe. The cam lock on the tool rest is poor. The plastic handles broke within a couple of hours. The delivery driver dumped it outside and I was on my own with a heavy bit of kit from there."
