Axminster Craft AC305WL Woodturning Lathe
This lathe offers great potential capacities and motor power plus the convenience of variable spindle speed with electronic control. 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.
Power comes from a 550W DC motor with electronic speed control providing full torque across the speed range. The spindle speed range is from 500 to 4,080rpm, with a choice of 2 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.
Supplied with Axminster drive and live centres, 150mm tool rest and 75mm faceplate.
Axminster Clubman SK100 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, the Clubman Chuck is as accurate and reliable as possible. The 100mm 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 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 the screw chuck. The set gives you plenty of scope from mounting blanks for initial turning to completion.
