Product Details

This is an exceptional woodturning lathe and is the established market leader in North America. Compared to many other bench top lathes it has greater work holding capacity allowing for 305mm bowl turning and 457mm spindle turning and has the advantage that you can extend the bed at a later stage to increase spindle turning to over 1000mm.

It is powered by a high torque, induction motor which is extremely quiet in use, even at maximum speed and under full load. A non-slip poly V belt efficiently transmits power from the motor whilst the motor controller automatically increases the level of torque to maintain the speed, as load on the workpiece is increased. The drive belt is moved to one of the three steps on the pulley and then the variable speed control knob is rotated, to dial in to a precise speed (450 to 1100rpm, 960 to 2400rpm or 1400 to 3500rpm).

The digital read out is ideally positioned on the top of the headstock to offer perfect visibility. The level of vibration is remarkably low, due to the substantial grey iron castings which have the mass needed to dampen and absorb vibration. The cast iron headstock is CNC machined for the precise alignment of the drive spindle and steel roller bearings, ensuring class leading concentricity. The drive spindle has a 1" x 8tpi thread with a no 2 morse taper to allow for the fitting of industry standard chucks and attachments. The tailstock has no 2 morse taper which is hollowed out to 10mm diameter to allow for the drilling of spindles for accepting electric cable when making standard and bed side lamps.

The extra long 200mm tool rest reduces the need for frequent repositioning and is held firmly in the non-slip banjo with a 25.4mm diameter stem. All of the adjustment handles are ergonomic and can be locked off to prevent obstruction with the turning tool. The lathe comes complete with a tool holder, revolving centre, four prong centre, 70mm face plate, spindle locking wrenches and a set of extra long bolts to fit the lathe to the premium lathe stand. This lathe is ideal for bowl and platter turning, goblet, vase and egg cup turning, pen turning and all between centres work.

This is a premium performance lathe that is extremely quiet in operation, virtually vibration free and features a variable speed, high torque motor and control unit.

Paul Walsh

This lathe lives up to its specification. I have used a number of brands of lathe in my tutors workshop ( he has 9 different lathes) and I can honestly say that this is the smoothest running lathe I have come across. You don't even need to mount it down, it seems to have no vibration. Without and adjustments the headstock and tailstock lined up perfectly. It's great - what more can I say. Rutlands should make a video of it to show how smooth it is.

I was impressed from the moment I started to unbox this lathe. It was extremely well packed in a polystyrene mould, there were no chips or damage to the paint surface and all I had to do was plug and go. I have had two other lathes in the past and neither compare to this. It is remarkably quiet and simply purrs when you turn the speed dial. I balanced a penny coin on the headstock, that's how smooth it is. It is in a different class to any other lathe I have owned. It looks very similar to the Rikon lathe sold in America. I have turned a couple of bowls out of Bubinga and I am delighted with the finish. It really is an excellent lathe.
