WL-18 - Swivel Head Wood Lathe
Ø310mm Swing x 900mm Between Centres
Variable Speed 500 ~ 2000rpm & Swivelling Headstock
The WL-18 wood lathe is an excellent "value for money" floor standing lathe, perfect for getting the green wood turner started in the craft with a minimum of outlay.
The WL-18 lathe is mainly made up from cast iron to provide the rigidity that's required and needed in all good wood lathes. Changing the spindle speed from 500 to 2000rpm is extremely easy via the stepless variable speed control lever mounted on the front of the head. The headstock can be swivelled and locked in position to allow bowls to be turned in front of the lathe; the 45° and 90° positions are indexed for ease of selection.
The lathe comes complete with an outboard tool rest extension which is used to get the bowl rest into the best position when turning with the head rotated. The head and tailstock both have 2 morse tapers and the drive spindle thread is a common 1" x 10tpi. Supplied as standard with the machine is a 4 prong drive centre, revolving tailstock centre & faceplate.
