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.

Nexus3 Woodturning Chuck 95mm
Nexus3 which has a jaw mounting compatible with Supernova, G3 Nova and Robert Sorby Patriot Jaws. This will be of particular interest to any owners of those chucks looking for a second chuck and wanting to be able to continue using any jaws they already own.
A 95mm diameter scroll chuck, with the jaws adjusted by a geared mechanism for simple one handed operation. Self centring, high precision design. The fully enclosed body of the chuck prevents dust and chips from getting inside and plugging up the teeth of the gear mechanism. Ideal for Midi sized lathes and upwards. The standard dovetail jaws can grip the workpiece both internally or externally depending on the style and shape of the piece to be turned. The chuck fits directly onto lathes with headstock thread size of M33 x 3.5tpi. For other thread sizes, an optional insert is required. We also include a wood screw which clamps into the centre of the chuck for the initial mounting of bowl blanks.
Supplied with standard dovetail jaws, wood screw, T-bar for locking the jaws and T-handled hex key for swapping the jaws. We have an extensive range of optional jaws and accessories available for the Nexus3 chuck.
