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.

AT1416vs latheAfter buying two other lathes since Nov. 2015 and having to send them back as faulty I do hope i am not talking too soon about the at1416vs lathe. I have had this lathe for only two weeks and must say I am very pleased with it. As I do lots of thread chasing I needed a very good variable speed lathe, I can leave this lathe on the middle speed range about 350 to 1750 rpm and it is so smooth and quiet it's a real pleasure to use. It's quite heavy but that's fine and will be ok when I'm out doing my demos. Any negatives, not really. Not sure how Axminster get 16" between centres but it's fine for me. And I no longer want to do production work so done need the extension. Well done Axminster.

great wee latheThis lathe is just great! nice and quiet with plenty of power, an ideal starter lathe or professional use for demonstrations, easily transports in back of car and doesn't take much space up in the garage. i would recommend this lathe without hesitation.

A great little latheI have demonstrated with many small lathes and this is the best one I have used. Small but powerful, light and easy to move. The only slight criticism would be that the variable speed control could be a little bit more compact. The bed extension is very useful too and increases the lathe's capacity. I am very happy with the lathe and would recommend it.
