New look, new code, same great machine! We have updated the look.
We're proud to say that we introduced the Mini lathe into the Australian market back in the early 90's, offering Australian hobbyists a chance to experience the versatility and functionality of a wood lathe in a small, affordable package. Today there are dozens of options when looking at mini lathes. This machine is a small, well-priced lathe with five spindle speeds. The headstock, bed and tailstock are constructed of cast iron and the 1/2 HP induction motor has more than enough power for projects like pen turning and small spindle turning. It is ideally suited for the beginner or as a lathe which can be transported more easily due to its lighter weight and compact size. Includes: drive centre, revolving tailstock centre and 80mm diameter faceplate.
