The headstock on this professional level wood lathe can be positioned anywhere along the bed and rotated to any angle so that a comfortable position can always be found for any job. The headstock, toolrest and tailstock are all made from cast iron and have cam-locking levers for fast adjustment.
The lathe is connected to any standard 240volt power supply but an inverter then converts the power to 3 phase electricity to supply the motor. The purpose is to allow a full range of speed control down to 200rpm without losing any torque from the motor. The 3 phase inverter ensures the same amount of power output even when running at low speeds.
A digital display gives an accurate speed reading at all times. A pulley change selects the low or high speed range, low is used for heavier workpieces, high for small diameter pieces or finishing.
The versatility of this machine is further increased with the addition of a reverse direction selector, 36 position pin indexing, hollow headstock and tailstock suitable for long hole boring and a handle for manual rotation.
The cast iron floorstand has four adjustable rubber feet and two additional braces for absolute rigidity. A wire basket for holding your chisels and tools completes the package.

Supplied with four pronged drive centre, revolving tail centre, push button spindle lock, centre knock out bar, floorstand, 355mm toolrest, 150mm diameter faceplate, cable and plug.
