Toolmate 12X18” Variable Speed Wood Lathe 550W
This small benchtop lathe is ideal for pen making. It also has the capacity to turn bowls up to 8″(200mm) in diameter and the between centre distance is 18″(305mm) Spindle thread is the standard 1″ x 8tpi so a small chuck can also be fitted to it. We recommend that you use the Jet chuck which is 65mm in diameter.Any chuck bigger than that may put unecessary strain on the headstock bearings.The headstock and tailstock both have a no 1 morse taper hole, so attachments like headstock and tailstock centers must all be no 1 MT. The electronically variable speed is adjusted by means of a pod on the front of the lathe so it will also be an ideal lathe for modelmakers and the like. It is supplied without a stand and can be mounted on any sturdy table. Accessories includes a tool rest, small faceplate as well as drive-and tailstock centres.
