Product Description

Heavy Duty Cast Iron Electronic Variable Speed Lathe

This brand new lathe from Record Power represents the culmination of many decades of expertise in the manufacture and supply of superior woodturning lathes. Developed with the help of professional woodturners and keen hobbyists, we believe we have produced a world-class machine for woodturners of all levels. Thanks to a number of innovative design solutions the capabilities, features and performance of the Herald far exceed anything a machine of this size has been capable of before - It brings top-end professional performance at a fraction of the size and cost of comparable heavy-duty machines.To reflect the Record Power heritage in a modern context, the look of the lathe incorporates the elegant and balanced curves of the earlier Coronet series in a more streamlined and efficient form. As well as looking great, the Herald feels great - the excellence of engineering, ergonomics and quality manufacturing can be felt throughout, making the lathe a pleasure to use whilst delivering rock solid performance.

*Please note, leg stand pictured is not included & is available as a separate purchase.

"fantastic lathe, solid quiet a pleasure to use "

"When I got it set up it is a very good lathe and would probably have got 5 stars, However the tapping for the leg screws was faulty and the bed had to be sent to Record to be re-tapped. When I got it set up and one rubber leg foot pulled through its washer, I have not received a replacement yet and when all set up to go the tail stock would not slide on the bed. After talking to Record staff, I had to spend about two hours with emery paper to get the tail stock to slide properly, obviously a slight machining fault. The quality control in production is not up to scratch hence only 3 stars but as I said a very good lathe to work with."

"What a difference the lathe makes! A wee beauty this lathe, smooth, quiet, certainly enough power for the capacity of the machine. Very pleased with it overall. only niggle is the finish of the tool-rest, but nothing that a few minutes with a file didn't sort out, although there are better designs that suit me. Altogether a highly recommendable machine.....well pleased."

"I ordered the Record Coronet Herald lathe and the bench mounted feet on package offer from Yandles to install on my heavy shop built bench as an upgrade from my small Axminster wood lathe. I am very happy with my choice as it is a great little lathe that has given me more power and a bigger swing over the bed and the head swivel option that gives me even bigger scope for turning larger bowls.Also gives better access for turning as I have limited workshop space. So far I cannot find fault with this lathe for my hobby and can only highly recommend it along with Yandles good value and service."

"Delivery was good and the lathe is a lovely piece of kit that works well and fits my needs to perfection. Its well made and very versatile for a small lathe and pleased with the advise received from Yandles on the items I would need in addition to the lathe to get me started with wood turning."

"There are a lot of what you might call 'entry level' lathes, but this is the one you should get, because it's the one you'll wish you'd have bought. I know it's more than twice the price, but you can be assured you spent your money wisely. If you decide you don't like wood-turning, then this will be infinitely more re-saleable than a cheap mini lathe. I looked around for a second-hand Coronet Herald - could not find one. My only quibble, is the action of the tailstock quill. It's not super smooth and there is no sleeve on the handle to make winding it in and out friction-free. You can;t grip the handle firmly, because it has to turn in your fingers. I find myself gripping the edge of the wheel rather than using the handle at all. Hoping it will get better with use."

"This lathe was bought for my husband and he is thrilled. From the first time I contacted customer service dept, online ordering, through to the excellent speedy delivery, subsequent easy assembly to the first turned item everything has been excellent, thankyou. The lathe in his words is 'it's a joy to work with, smooth, quiet and with variable speed makes things so much more convenient'. Have no hesitation in purchasing from you again (as we have done) would recommend Yandles to everyone. He looks forward to actually visiting you in Martock at some point! "

"Excellent lathe - let down by no spindle lock (using index lock invalidates guarantee according to user manual !') Also emergency stop button is situated over moving work piece when swivel head in use."

"I recently purchased the new Coronet Herald Lathe and am absolutely delighted so far.. Having almost spent a year trying to decide what lathe to buy, I finally came across the all new Herald and just at the right moment!. I had previously and still do use our school Union Graduate lathe, an extremely robust machine. At some stage of its life, some bright spark had added an electronic box allowing forward reverse and adjustable speed,( no belt changing) incredible!, I could only then view lathes with this adaption unfortunately some were to costly, to small or to large. This purchase for me needed to be an all rounder and offer me a tool that will last until I cant turn anymore. Its an elegant but as it is a robust design and sits well on the supplied legs. Its powerful and has the ability for the headstock to be positioned at an angle should you find stretching over when hollowing a little uncomfortable. It certainly has all the trappings a modern turner needs. However it isn't that perfect as the emergency stop button attached to the main electronics box does prove to be a bit precarious as you have to either stretch over your spinning work or reach around the back to stop the machine quickly when needed!!. Its electronic box works on maintaining the set working speed when cutting..v clever. The motor pulley handle that is used to apply tension to the drive belt is to small however it does have a small viewing hole that magnifies the indexing number slots. I assembled the unit myself and found everything self explanatory. I would very much recommend this lathe if you are looking for a long term investment for the keen amateur or professional turner. Thank you Record"

"Bought the Herald after trying out a friends for an hour, to replace a seventy year old Coronet Minor! What a difference! No vibration, rock solid, instant dial up speed change, masses of torque, spannerless banjo adjustment. I just time travelled to the 21st century. What's not to like? Well after a few weeks use I have no criticism at all, in fact I heartily recommend this lathe."

"I bought a Record Coronet Herald yesterday. Great service, great advice. I assembled it with a friend last night. We loaded a 12" bowl blank and ran it up to speed. We suddenly realised that we were both just stood there watching it rotate wondering where the vibration and sound had gone. It is just astonishing!"

State-of-the-Art Motor and Full Electronic Variable SpeedThe 750 W motor features the latest in motor technology to give huge amounts of torque, comparable to lathes over twice the size and motor rating. Instantaneous speed change is achieved using the easily accessible control panel. Reversing is also offered for sanding or left handed turning (Must be used only with suitable locking systems for chucks and accessories).

Rotating and Repositionable Headstock

Unlike most cast bed lathes, the headstock of the Herald can be rotated 360º, optimising access and also making it ideal for left-handed turners, who can effectively turn this machine into a fully left-handed lathe using the reverse facility of the control system. A bearing system beneath the headstock allows it to be located in popular positions. The headstock can also be moved along the lathe bed if required.

Cam Lock

The tool rest holder is locked in place instantly with the easy to use cam locking system

Heavy Duty Tool Rest Stem

The 25 mm diameter tool rest stem helps minimise vibration, giving a smoother and easier cut.

3 Step Pulley

A 3 step pulley is provided for maximum versatility. For most turning the middle pulley is perfect and provides good torque but if you need maximum torque comparable to much larger lathes for heavy cuts or low speed work, then the bottom pulley has immense torque capability. For very small work, polishing or burnishing acrylics, the top pulley gives access to very high speeds.

Hand Wheel

The headstock features a substantial hand wheel to turn the spindle, making fitment of headstock accessories much easier.

Heavy Duty Spindle Lock and Indexing

Holds the spindle securely and offers a full 24 point indexing function.

Innovative Tailstock Design

The tailstock has been designed to allow easier access to the cam lock handle at the rear. It is also profiled and open on one side for comfortable grip when sliding along the bed.
