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.

Axminster Clubman SK80 Woodturning Chuck
Possibly the most useful accessory, this chuck kit is the perfect companion to an Axminster woodturning lathe. Made in Axminster using CNC production techniques to ensure your chuck is as accurate and reliable as possible. The 80mm stainless steel chuck body including the thread is a single piece, maximising concentricity and minimising vibration during use. The chuck features our Safety Jaw accessory mounting jaws which have rounded corners and includes a chuck key. Packed into a strong plastic storage box, this chuck set includes a set of easy to use dovetail jaws (size C), into which you can also mount the matching faceplate ring or screw chuck. The set gives you plenty of scope from mounting blanks for initial turning to final completion of a well-executed project.
