Package deal comprises the Axminster Trade Series AT1416VS Woodturning Lathe and the Stand for Axminster Trade Series AT1416VS Woodturning Lathe
Axminster Trade Series AT1416VS Woodturning Lathe
The AT1416VS utilises the very reliable inverter technology usually found on much larger machines. Electronic variable speed is a desirable feature for woodturners, enabling fine tuning of speed to suit larger diameters or out of balance workpieces. A three step poly-vee pulley system allows three speed ranges which ensure maximum torque at all speeds. A versatile magnetic switch unit can be placed at a convenient position on the lathe to suit the work in hand and incorporates on/off buttons, a speed control knob and a forward and reverse switch. An LED digital read-out of the lathe speed in RPM is a useful feature and 400mm(16") between centres and a 350mm(14") swing over the bed capacity is unusual on a lathe this compact. Spindle indexing is achieved in 15° segments by insertion of a magnetic dowel pin. Threaded holes (3/8"x16 UNC) are provided at each corner of the lathe for bench mounting. Tool post diameter 1" (25.4mm). Supplied with four prong Axminster drive centre, Axminster revolving tailstock centre, 3" faceplate and a knock out bar.
N.B. The distance between centres will vary and be dependent on the type of centres or accessories used.

Brilliant LatheI wanted a lathe for my woodcraft shop with variable speed as I was getting fed up with changing the belt on my old mini lathe. The only two lathes I liked were the AT1628 and the AT1416 trade models. The AT1416 was perfect and the best choice for my needs.
