Power is supplied to the lathe through a standard 240v plug. An inverter then converts to 3 phase electricity to feed the motor. The advantage of this system is to allow very fine control of the rotation speed and keep the same high level or torque, even at the lowest speed of just 100rpm. A digital display gives an accurate speed reading at all times.
The headstock on this lathe can be positioned anywhere along the length of the bed and rotated around to any angle, so that a convenient position can always be found for any bowl turning project. The Tool rest has an extension arm and can be positioned on either side of the headstock. You can therefore turn bowls in 2 different ways: over the bed or in front of the bed.
All three elements: headstock, tool rest & tailstock, slide along the bed and are locked into place with a strong cam lock lever, fitted with a comfort grip.
The cast iron floor stand ensures vibration free running, has brackets should you wish to attach a storage shelf, and has floor fixing points. There is also a tool storage rack to keep all the accessories handy and ready to use.
Supplied with drive centre, tail centre, 150mm diameter faceplate, knock out bar, floor stand, cable and plug.
