Product Description

(Shown with optional Outrigger bowl rest)
  • Swivel head
  • Heavy duty cast iron bed and stand
  • Electronic variable speed driven by six pulleys
  • Sturdy 1' diameter toolrest spindle
  • Repositionable control box
Record Power have long been advocates of swivel head machines which not only reduce floorspace required for outboard turning as this can be achieved in front of the lathe - but also enables many different angles to be set so access from the traditional bed mounted toolrest can be improved on hollow vessels for example. The headstock is a large heavy casting and is repositioned easily with a cam operated locking mechanism.
The whole machine is very heavily built with extensive use of cast iron throughout - including the legs. Electronic speed control is delivered by a high quality inverter system from Schneider and all main components operate on easy to use cam locks. Weighing in at over 200kg and with a swing of 20 degrees over the bed this lathe will handle the most demanding applications with consummate ease and we believe the value for money offered here will redefine the heavy sector of the market.

"I bought my Maxi when it was a few months old and I've had it for several years in which time it has handled everything that I ever wanted to turn, from 30" platters to huge, irregular chunks of bog-oak, and then for Slimline pen turning. As a professional turner I use it almost every day of the week and in the last few years it has been used by a few hundred students. My Maxi regularly features on the pages of Woodturning magazine in the articles that I write for them. I am so pleased with it that when I wanted a second, smaller lathe for students to play with, I went out and bought another Record Power machine."
