Axminster Craft AC240WL Woodturning Lathe
The perfect choice to any one with limited space or a small workshop; this woodturning lathe features 5 spindle speeds, a 240mm diameter turning capacity and 440mm between centres.
The headstock, bed and tailstock are cast iron whilst the 375W induction motor has more than enough power for the type of projects likely to be produced on a lathe of this size. The 5 spindle speeds give a useful range of between 700 and 2,800rpm. Both the headstock spindle and tailstock barrel are bored to take 2MT accessories, with the spindle having the common 1" x 8tpi thread. The tailstock also has a hollow barrel to enable long hole boring.
Supplied with Axminster drive and revolving tailstock centres, 75mm diameter faceplate and 150mm tool rest.
AC150WSG Wide Stone Grinder
This Axminster bench grinder is an excellent machine for any keen woodturner. It features the usual general-purpose grey grinding wheel on the left hand side with a 40mm wide 80-grit aluminium oxide white wheel, which is perfect for sharpening turning tools.
The white stone is wide enough to accommodate the majority of carving, turning and general woodworking tools and, being of aluminium oxide, is far less likely to burn the edge of the tool. The grinder is equipped with adjustable tool rests, spark guards, NVR switch and eye shields. Wheel diameter 150mm(6"), bore 12.7mm(1/2").
