The electronic variable speed drive gives up to 200% torque on low rpm. The three-step pulleys provide 3 ratios 1:1 for small to medium size work; 1:1.5 for medium to large work; and 1:3 for large work. The diagram in the above photos shows the maximum spindle RPM at each pulley step. The lathe is fitted with a remote magnetic switch box (including reverse).


The cast iron lathe is mounted on a 4mm thick steel stand, which has been designed with a 700mm wide footprint for stability and rigidity.


All VL300 lathe models accept an extension bed at either end of the machine.  A 500mm or 1000mm bolt on extension bed is available and multiple extensions can be added on.

Note: with 1000mm extension bed you will require an extension bed leg.


Precision machined face on both ends of the bed for bolt on extension bed or swing away tailstock support.

Digital speed readout located below the headstock that displays the actual spindle RPM.


Hindged headstock door for ease of use and an ergonomic Toolrest.


This model lathe can also be fitted with a mushroom twist stop bottom and additional limit switches on the headstock and motor doors making it comply to regulations for lathes in schools;  Part No. P01115
