Product Description

Record Power DML305 Cast Iron 6 Speed Midi Lathe

The Record Power DML305 is a very well built cast iron midi lathe with the potential to expand. The bed is made of fi nely ground cast iron for weight and rigidity and is fi tted with cam locking toolrest that clamps easily and solidly to the bed with one handed operation. The Record Power DML305 comes with 393mm between centres but optional bed extensions can be added to increase this capacity.The swing over the bed is 305mm and the motor is 1/2hp providing ample power for the capacities of the lathe. The spindle has a M33x3.5 thread to ensure a wide range of Record Power accessories can be fi tted and the whole machine is well fi nished with polished metal handles, a spindle lock with indexing and graduated markings on the tailstock barrel. There is even a tool tray attached to the headstock to keep essential items close to hand. Many of these features are normally only found on expensive professional lathes.The  Record Power DML305 can be bench mounted or there is a very sturdy and simple fabricated steel legstand available as an optional extra. Optional legs can be added if necessary when cast bed extensions are used in conjunction with the stand.

"As a very new turner (about 3 months), I haven't used this to its full potential by any means. Looks and feels well engineered. Nice and heavy (40+ kilos). Nice and stable bolted to workbench. This certainly feels very different to the home-made tools and lathe(!!) I was using in the couple of months prior to recent purchase (2 or 3 weeks) of lathe, tools, extraction, grinder and finishing package. I had a very small issue which was sorted very easily. This was the little black sprung tightening levers for quill, toolrest and motor tensioner. These are made of soft aluminium alloy(?) with 12 points inside. The bolts they tighten are steel hex bolts. These 12 point levers wear very quickly on the hard steel hex bolts (a matter of days on the toolrest one). They really need to be hex like the bolts instead of 12 point, or, made of harder metal. Anyway, rang Yandles (very helpful throughout all stages of order/purchase) and was directed to Record Power (also very helpful) who sent a couple of new ones out within about 3 days. Back to the lathe, very easy to adjust speeds and use in general. Having only had this for about 3 weeks, I realise there is a lot to learn! "
