Axminster Craft AC370WL Woodturning Lathe
The AC370WL is a strong floor standing, cast iron woodturning lathe with big capacities and a powerful motor to match the larger capacities.
The centre height is a full 185mm giving a massive 370mm (14") maximum turning diameter over the bed and the ability to turn larger diameter bowls without the need to rotate the head. The distance between centres is a very useful 1,100mm for turning longer spindles and similar items. The swivelling headstock is free to slide along the length of the bed, giving the facility to set the headstock in the most convenient position. The variable spindle speed system gives a wide range of speed options with a simple twist of a lever.
Supplied with 4-prong Axminster drive centre, Axminster revolving tailstock centre, 150mm faceplate, outboard tool rest extension, 300mm tool rest and floor stand.
