In Detail

Craft Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

For those looking for a bench mounted woodturning lathe with slightly larger capacities and motor power plus the convenience of variable spindle speed with electronic control, but still within a reasonable budget, this model would be a great choice. Receive a free 3-hour woodturning session or a discount on a skill centre woodturning course, see banner below for more details.

Made almost entirely in cast iron, the bed of this lathe has a finely ground top surface ensuring stability and minimal vibration during operation. The thick walled cast iron headstock and tailstock provide rigidity, coupled with strength and years of trouble-free turning pleasure. The tailstock has a 9mm bore allowing the use of a standard long-hole boring auger and features automatic ejection of centres. Quick release levers allow for easy and accurate positioning of tool rest and tailstock.

The lathe is powered by a 550W DC motor with electronic speed control that provides full torque across the speed range. The spindle speed range is from 500 to 4,080rpm, with a choice of two belt ratios. The spindle nose has the very common 1" x 8tpi thread and a 2MT internal taper, so a large range of accessories is available.

Solid rubber feet help to eliminate movement whilst in operation. The tailstock barrel has 50mm of movement and includes a 2MT bore. An additional bed extension is available, giving an extra capacity of 670mm between centres. This is a great lathe for those looking for that extra power and capacity but retaining portability.

Supplied with Axminster drive and live centres, 150mm tool rest and 75mm faceplate.

N.B. The distance between centres will vary and be dependent on the type of centres or accessories used.
