Everything about this lathe is designed for the user. Strength, stability and control are at the heart throughout to satisfy true specialists and woodturning professionals.
One of the striking features of this lathe is an ergonomic panel with controls mounted in an anodized aluminium plate. The speed is smoothly controlled with a tactile rubber augmented knurled aluminium dial. Add the easy-to-read blue hue of the speed indicator and this machine stands out from the competition.
The solid bed, with an impressive width of 208mm, is made of high-quality steel ASTM A36 (tougher than cast iron), and is precisely ground providing smooth travel of the headstock, tailstock and toolrest. The spindle is run by a highly efficient 2HP (10amp) induction motor with a VFD frequency convertor for high torque even at lower speeds. The speed range can be changed with a clever one-lever mechanism.
The headstock, tailstock and legs of the lathe are made from cast-iron securing minimum vibration and high comfort for turning of oversized pieces. Tailstock and Headstock cam lock levers are placed on the back of the machine and will not get in the way. All cam lock levers have soft grip handles and a long length resulting in a firm feel with no deflection. The legs/stand are included as standard equipment on this model.
This machine suits serious hobbyist’s and professionals alike. The power at your control, provides ample torque for utilising the full capacity of the machine, whether that be the 450mm (18″) swing over the bed, to the 900mm (36″) distance between centres. But if that’s not enough, a full suite of optional accessories are also available.
An Expansion Set consists of a 500mm (20″) step down extension, that increases the onboard capacity to an enormous 1410mm (56″)! An included riser block then allows the tailstock to travel to the end of this extension. This in turn allows you to slide the headstock to the end of the lathe for an increased bowl capacity of 800mm (32″), with a tool rest extension included to use with your regular banjo. Perhaps you find your tailstock in the way when not in use… The Swing Away extension acts as a small 12″ bed extension, that conveniently unclips and swings out of the way when not in use. The Deluxe Wheel kit features a gas strut and will have you mobile with your machine through your shop.
Supplied with 2MT four prong drive centre, 2MT revolving tail centre, 12″ Tool Rest with 1″ arbor, 75mm (3″) diameter faceplate, knock-out bar, stand and onboard storage for accessories.
