Axminster Craft AC355WL Woodturning Lathe
The AC355WL is perfect for those woodturners looking to move up from a smaller lathe, or as a first lathe for the more ambitious newcomer. Like most quality lathes, this one is grey cast iron giving extra stability and vibration absorbing properties. Featuring a powerful DC brush motor, with variable speed, 3 belt ratios and reverse, it has a speed range to suit every project within its size capacities. A readout display helps select the appropriate speed for the job.
The tailstock angles towards the end of the bed to maximise the distance between centres. Cam locks secure both the tailstock and tool rest holder, and both are easy to move along the bed. The headstock features large bearings to support the spindle. A flip-up cover allows easy access to the multi-V belt for speed ratio changing.
There is a system to provide a 24-stop indexing facility, with a spring-loaded indent pin to hold the spindle into position. The spindle thread is M33 x 3.5mm with a 2MT internal taper to hold centres etc. With a capacity of 510mm between centres and with a swing capacity of 355mm, many ambitious projects can be undertaken. Mounted on rubber feet and supplied with Axminster drive and tailstock centres, plus a 100mm faceplate.
Axminster Craft 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").
