24 position spindle indexing, position held by magnetic dowel pin Supplied with Axminster drive and revolving tailstock centres The AT1416VS utilises the very 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 work 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 switch unit can be placed in any convenient position on the lathe bed or headstock to suit the work in hand and incorporates on/off buttons, a speed control knob and a forward and reverse switch. An LED digital read-out of the lathe speed in RPM is a useful feature that helps control your work. 400mm(16″) between centres and a 350mm(14″) swing over the bed capacity is generous on a lathe this compact. Spindle indexing is achieved in 15° segments by insertion of a magnetic dowel pin. Threaded holes (3/8″x16 UNC) are provided at each corner of the lathe for bench mounting. Tool post diameter 1″ (25.4mm). 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, 3″ faceplate and a knock out bar. N.B. The distance between centres will vary and be dependent on the type of centres or accessories used.
