The AT1016VS is the smallest woodturning lathe within our Trade Series range. It offers the same level of quality and user friendliness as its larger cousins but in a compact package. This lathe shares the same bed as the AT1416VS, so is extremely stable in use. It is powered by a 560W DC brush motor which runs exceptionally quietly for this type of motor. The controls are all conveniently grouped together on the end of the bed with the On/Off power switch, speed control knob and reversing switch falling easily to hand. An LED display shows the spindle speed in real time. The headstock spindle is supported by twin ball bearings, spaced widely apart to give rigidity, and is fitted with the common M33 x 3.5mm thread. The spindle is driven by a multi V-belt with a choice of three ratios giving a very wide spread of spindle speeds. There is also a 24-position indexing facility, with a magnetic down pin holding the position selected.
The tailstock has a very precise mechanism, with the barrel being etch marked for precision drilling. Held by a cam lock lever, it slides along the bed very easily and has minimal side movement. The tool rest holder is also locked quickly by a secure cam lock, the tool rest post being off set for greater strength.
Carrying handles are fitted at each end of the bed, and four rubber screw-in feet are provided.
There is an extension bed for the lathe, plus floor stands for both the lathe and extension bed; all are available as optional extras.
Supplied with Axminster manufactured 4-prong drive and revolving tailstock centres, knock out bar, 3" faceplate and spindle holding spanner.
