The AT1416VS utilises the very reliable inverter technology usually found on much larger machines. Electronic variable speed is a desirable feature for woodturners, enabling fine tuning of speed to suit delicate work, larger diameters or out of balance work pieces. A three step poly-V pulley system allows three speed ranges which coupled with the load sensing inverter ensure maximum torque and stable spindle speeds. The magnetic switch unit can be placed in any convenient position on the lathe bed or headstock to suit the work in hand and incorporates on/off buttons, a speed control knob and a forward and reverse switch. An LED digital read-out of the lathe speed in RPM is a useful feature that helps control your work. 400mm(16") between centres and a 350mm(14") swing over the bed capacity is generous on a lathe this compact. Spindle indexing is achieved in 15° segments by insertion of a magnetic dowel pin. Threaded holes (3/8"x16 UNC) are provided at each corner of the lathe for bench mounting. Tool post diameter 1" (25.4mm). This lathe has proved to be very popular for both teaching and craft demonstrations, not too big nor heavy but with enough capacity to show off your skills. Supplied with four prong Axminster drive centre, Axminster revolving tailstock centre, 3" faceplate and a knock out bar.
N.B. The distance between centres will vary and be dependent on the type of centres or accessories used.

super lathebeen using one to teach so bought myself one, excellent quality, and does what is says it does on a very very heavy box. Some comments, the lathe is exceptionally heavy as it needs to be, however its fixed to a bench via 4 bolts in its corner- a cheap paper template of these hole locations would have been so useful. I also bought a chuck converter to use my existing K10 chuck and the spanner size is slightly different from the one supplied for the lathe- an annoying issue that does not detract froma good product

Great 1614VS latheI have used this lathe now for over six months and it is the best thing I ever bought so far for my wood turning hobby! It is solidly build , runs very quiet and reliable, all part are made pretty accurate , very suitable for a beginner and a professional alike. The was a little steep in price but worth it and I have no regrets.

Great LatheAfter using this lathe for the first time today my overall impressions are that this is a wonderful lathe.The lathe operates smoothly and quietly.The fit and finish seems very good and I am already very satisfied with my purchase.I would suggest this lathe to anyone needing a serious lathe but not having the room for some of the much bigger machines.
