The AP350WL utilises the reliable inverter technology usually found on much larger machines. Electronic variable speed is a desirable feature for woodturners, enabling fine tuning of speed to suit delicate work, larger diameters or out of balance pieces. A three step poly-V pulley system allows three speed ranges which coupled with the load sensing inverter ensure maximum torque and stable spindle speeds.
The magnetic backed switch unit can be placed in any convenient position on the lathe bed or headstock to suit the work in hand. It incorporates on/off buttons, a speed control knob and forward and reverse switch. The LED digital read-out of the spindle speed gives you complete control. The AP350WL has a generous capacity of 400mm (16″) between centres and a 350mm (14″) swing over the bed. Spindle features 24 division indexing. Threaded holes (3/8″x16 UNC) are provided at each corner of the lathe for bench mounting. Tool post diameter 25.4mm (1″). This lathe has proved to be very popular for both teaching and craft demonstrations, not too big nor heavy but with enough capacity to show off your skills. Supplied with four prong Axminster drive centre, Axminster revolving tailstock centre, 75mm faceplate and a knock-out bar.
N.B. The distance between centres will vary and be dependent on the type of centres or accessories fitted.
