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

Special Price: £1,299.00The headstock on this professional level lathe can be positioned anywhere along the bed so that a comfortable position can always be found for any job. The headstock, toolrest and tailstock are all made from cast iron and have cam-locking levers for fast adjustment.
The lathe is connected to any standard 240volt power supply but an inverter then converts the power to allow a full range of speed control down to 100rpm without losing any torque from the motor.
A digital display gives an accurate speed reading at all times. A pulley change selects the low or high speed range, low is used for heavier workpieces where more torque is required.
The versatility of this machine is further increased with the addition of a reverse direction selector, 36 position indexing system and hollow headstock and tailstock suitable for long hole boring.
A cast iron floorstand ensures vibration free running and brackets are fitted should you wish to attach a storage shelf.

The rotating headstock design allows for larger diameter work, such as bowl turning, of up to 18" in diameter, to be turned over the front of the machine. Obtaining the correct speed for cutting is no problem with the variable speed controller with 10 locator stops, which operates at the turn of a lever. When using the headstock rotated to the front, the extendable toolrest can be positioned on the left hand side using the extension bed supplied.

NOW WITH FREE CARRIAGE TO UK MAINLAND, SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS EMAIL FIRST. 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.

Built to a high standard and capable of taking a 400mm(16") diameter bowl and a bed long enough to turn a 1,060mm(42") long spindle. All the major castings are thick section cast iron which gives a very solid feel to the lathe and should guarantee vibration-free running. Power is provided by a 1,100W motor driving the spindle through a choice of two pairs of pulleys and controlled by a variable speed controller situated at the rear of the headstock. The low speed range gives plenty of torque for the big turning jobs whilst the high speed range gives the speed necessary for smaller components and for finishing. The front panel of the headstock, as well as housing the speed control knob, has a rpm indicator, a safety on/off knob, a reversing switch and the access panel for changing the belt position. Other features are the swivelling, lockable chuck guard, tool basket under the bed, provision for mounting a shelf on the stand, indexing facility and spring loaded shaft lock.

The DML305-VS cast iron lathe represents a new benchmark in high quality midi lathes and is perfect for the user with minimal space or as a second lathe for demonstrations and shows. The bed is made of finely ground cast iron for weight and rigidity and fitted with cam locking toolrests that clamp easily and solidly to the bed with one handed operation. It gives 393mm between centres as standard and optional bed extensions can be added to increase this capacity. The swing over the bed is 305mm and the 1/2hp motor provides plenty of power for the capacity of the machine. The spindle is 3/4” x 16tpi thread to ensure a wide range of Record Power accessories can be fitted. The lathe is extremely well finished with polished metal handles, spindle lock with indexing and graduated markings on the tailstock barrel. Many of these features are normally only found on expensive professional lathes. The DML305-VS features high quality full electronic variable speed control. This system should not be confused with cheap and simple rheostat versions which have poor torque and can cause overheating of the motor. The DML305-VS uses a three phase motor and inverter system, similar to that used in the CL4. The high quality inverter converts the single phase supply to three phase, enabling smooth and stepless control through a wide range of speeds. This is an industrially proven method and provides the low end torque that is so essential to the woodturner but is sadly lacking in so many poorer quality alternatives.
