Constructed of heavy cast iron, the bed, classically shaped legs, headstock, tailstock and tool rest assembly provide over 370 pounds of stability when turning. Plus, the large 1.75HP 115V motor gives the power and dependability needed for working on the largest bowls or oversized spindle projects. The newly designed headstock can swivel 180 degrees for outboard turning! This feature expands the bowl or platter diameters from 18″ to 27-1/2″, or up to 44″ if the headstock is secured facing forward (A freestanding tool rest is needed for this setup (not provided)). Spindle turnings up to 24″ in length can be done with the lathe, but with the addition of the optional 16″ long #70-908 Bed Extension, turnings up to 40″ are possible. The lathe has 3 additional machined surfaces on the sides of the bed to mount this special bed extension that increase the turning options even further. Lathe includes spur center, live center, 3-3/8” faceplate, 12″ tool rest with 1″ diameter post, MT2-MT2 spindle alignment tool, knock-out bars, wrenches and tool holder.
