A very worthwhile addition to the AT1628VS lathe, this 460mm bed extension kit will increase the capacity of your lathe in two ways. It can be bolted to the existing lathe bed for a greater between centres capacity or if you have the lathe fitted to the purpose-made leg stand, it will bolt onto the leg stand in a lower position. With the supplied tool rest extension post this enables you to turn bowls or platters up to 870mm. Heavy cast iron construction for stability and vibration damping it simply bolts onto the end of the lathe bed.

Well Engineered and Great ValueThe lathe bed extension can be fitted to either end of the lathe; at the tail to extend the bed by 460mm and at the head to permit turning of large platters with the headstock turned through 180 degrees, allowing platters up to an incredible 890mm. The extension comes with fittings and also a tool rest extension for use at the headstock end. All components are well engineered and can be fitted and removed with ease, testament to well engineered equipment. Very good value, I would have gave it 6 stars if I could have.
