  1. Charnwood Mini Lathe W815

    Charnwood Mini Lathe W815

    Regular Price: £199.00

    Special Price: £189.00

     A high quality mini woodworking lathe ideal for the production of smaller pieces or where the workshop size does not allow for a longer bed.


    The bed, headstock and tailstock are all constructed from cast iron to give vibration free running but the compact size means the weight is still manageable and the lathe can be removed from the bench when not in use.
    Electronic variable speed control allows the ideal speed to be quickly selected for jobs of any diameter. The new cam lock banjo design is even easier to use, and when coupled with the new round bar tool rest is a winning combination. The tool rest cross bar can be removed from the stem to change the length of the cross bar. Compatible with the Robert Sorby range of cross bars.
    We also now include a handy storage rack to keep centres, faceplates and service tools in one place and ready to go.


    Supplied with four prong drive centre, revolving tail centre, 150mm (6") tool rest cross bar with 12mm diameter stem, 75mm (3") diameter faceplate, cable and plug.

    Charnwood W824 Midi Lathe

    Regular Price: £349.00

    Special Price: £335.00

    The midi sized lathe continues to be the best seller. It is a size which can accomplish most of the projects turners are likely to try and is the largest lathe which can comfortably be moved off the bench when not in use. We have developed ours further this year to now include an indexing system on the headstock spindle as well as more robust electronics, specifically designed for UK voltage.

    The bed of the lathe is one-piece precision ground cast iron giving 14" between centres when working with our new heavy duty centres, which are supplied as standard. The bowl turning capacity of 12" diameter over the bed, requires a very low speed which is achieved using a converter and a DC motor. A clear LCD display shows the current RPM.

    The tool rest banjo is a cam-lock design for rapid adjustments with all metal components. The tool rest itself is our ever popular round bar made from hardened steel

    The headstock is hollow centred to allow for easy tool removal, the tailstock is also hollow and has automatic centre removal.

    Supplied with drive and tail centres 2MT, knockout bar, 6" toolrest with 5/8" shank, 3" diameter faceplate, tool holder, carrying handles and cable tidy.

    N.B. The distance between centres will vary and be dependent on the type of centres or accessories used. Maximum distance is 450mm (18").

  6. Jet JWL-1221VS Woodlathe

    Jet JWL-1221VS Woodlathe

    Regular Price: £802.80

    Special Price: £699.00

     


     


    The Jet JWL1221VS is different to every other lathe in the Jet range. The whole lathe has been designed to make the woodturning experience better by focusing on control.As with all other JET lathes, this one is made from cast iron, but the bed width is much wider than is usually found on machines of this size. This gives great support to the tool rest holder, which also stays exactly where you clamp it even under the heaviest loads. The spindle is supported by heavy duty bearings and is quietly driven by a 745W DC motor via a 6 groove belt system. All of the motor controls are very conveniently located together; the speed control, spindle speed digital readout and forward/reverse selector all come naturally to hand. The tall, rigid tailstock has an ACME barrel lead screw with 64mm of travel, the barrel and headstock spindles have 2MT tapers. Camlocks on both tailstock and toolrest holder allow easy positioning just where you want them. To help keep things tidy there are tool and cable storage fittings on the bed, keeping those essential tools within easy reach. Although this is a great bench top lathe, with the optional extension bed and matching lathe and bed stands you can expand this lathe into a floor standing machine with over 1,000mm between centres. The lathe stand has a built-in storage tray plus wide feet for stability, whilst the bed extension is an exact match to the lathe bed, giving a completely integrated look to whole machine. This is without doubt a very fine small lathe.
