In Detail

Trade Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

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.

Great 1614VS lathe

I 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.
One thing though, I am not too happy with, is , the motor is placed right underneath the cast iron bed and shavings and saw dust is gathering on top of it and not easy to keep away as my lathe is mounted on top of a purpose build bench. Brilliant lathe , worth every penny and if I should change to another lathe in the distance future , it would be the next model from Axminster!

Great Lathe

After 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.

great lathe AT-1416VS

After buying a lathe entry level AH-1218VS in 2013 I bought the AT-1416VS lathe.
It is a great lathe, very powerful, heavy construction and finished very well. Variable speed with excellent inverter is very professional. I am very happy to have bought it. Axminster excellent service.

AT1416vs lathe

After 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.
