Weighing in at 37kg the headstock, tailstock and bed of this woodturning lathe are constructed of heavy cast iron that has been precision machined for accuracy. The 1/2 hp high torque induction motor runs extremely quietly and has more than enough power to turn large diameter projects without stalling. By moving the poly v belt on the stepped pulleys, five spindle speeds between 760 and 3200rpm can be achieved. This allows for a bowl turning capacity of 240mm and a spindle capacity of 440mm between centres. This lathe also has the advantage that as the wood turners skill develops the lathe can also develop, by simply adding the optional DK6731 bed extension kit. This cast iron bed extension kit provides for up to 965mm between centres, allowing for the turning of standard lamps, stair spindle or chair legs.

The tailstock and saddle assembly smoothly slide along the machined cast iron bed and are rigidly locked off in position using cam operated steel levers and bristol locking levers. Both headstock and tailstock have No 2 morse tapers and the main drive spindle has the now industry standard 1" x 8tpi thread. The tailstock has a steel turn handle and is hollow bored to allow for long hole boring when turning table lamps. This is a delightful lathe to use and runs extremely smoothly, with minimal levels of vibration and with the lowest noise level we have come across. Supplied with a four prong centre, 75mm face plate for bowl turning, revolving centre and 150mm cast iron tool rest.

This 3" chuck is precision engineered and beautifully balanced offering a superior performance combined with rock-solid holding power and excellent load bearing capability. The compact design of this Xact chuck ensures that the workpiece sits as close as possible to the headstock therefore reducing load on the main headstock bearing and minimising vibration when turning. Xact chucks are specifically designed so the jaws will cut into the wood to provide high tear-out strength, unlike some other woodturning chucks that use engineering jaw profiles which crush the wood fibres and do not securely grip the workpiece. Measuring 70mm in diameter, this chuck can be used on all sizes of lathe from large capacity professional lathes through to midi and mini lathes. The chuck body is threaded to 1" x 8tpi and comes with a precision machine reducer to allow for use with lathes with a 3/4" x 16tpi spindle thread.

Engineered from medium tensile steel, this chuck is strong and durable and features a precision machined scroll mechanism and high ratio gearing for a strong grip irrespective of work piece size. The jaws open and close using a T-handled key, allowing for one handed operation, leaving one hand free to support and balance your workpiece. The chuck comes with standard dovetail jaws and a woodscrew allowing for pen turning, spindle turning, bowl turning, goblets and candlesticks and much more. This is without doubt the finest chuck we have ever offered and represents exceptional value for money. If you're looking for the finest chuck on the market look no further.
