Product Description

An excellent all rounder which makes a very good first lathe. Although the overall design has not changed for many years we have recently given this lathe a make over and uprated many of the components.

  • 550w (3/4hp) Induction Motor
  • Toolrest Design
  • Easy-Operation Camlock Design
  • Accessories Holder
  • 12" Bowl Turning Capacity
  • 36" Spindle Turning Capacity
  • Mechanical Variable Speed
  • Digital RPM Speed Display
  • Hollow Head & Tail Stocks
  • Rotating Headstock for Maximum 15" Diameter x 3" Depth Bowls using the Faceplate
  • Sturdy Floorstand with Shelf Included

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 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 allows for larger diameter work, such as bowl turning, of up to 15" 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 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, 2.5m power cable and UK 3 pin plug. The optional wheelbase is an excellent addition for anybody who needs to move this lathe around the workshop.
