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 760 and 3,200rpm. 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 Craft Woodturning Tool Set
The perfect set to get you started in woodturning. These 6 essential tools are made in Sheffield UK and will ensure you gain maximum satisfaction from your new hobby. It is the result of collaboration between Axminster Skill Centre tutors and a long established Sheffield tool manufacturer. They come correctly ground and ready sharpened. The blades are M2 HSS steel, fitted to smooth, well-shaped beechwood handles. M2 HSS holds a sharp edge far longer than cheaper carbon steel.

The set comprises:
20mm roughing gouge - for removing the corners of square stock and initial rough shaping.
19mm skew chisel - for planing cuts, trimming end grain, vee and finishing cuts, this chisel has rounded edges to help when cutting beads.
10mm spindle gouge - for cutting coves and concave shapes.
12mm parting tool - for parting work from the waste and cutting deep grooves when sizing.
10mm bowl gouge - with a deep ‘U’ shaped flute both shaping the outside and inside of bowls or goblets.
13mm round nose scraper - used for removing tool marks and refining the shape of a bowl.
Overall length: 340mm (bowl gouge 490mm), handle length: 215mm (Bowl gouge 320mm).
