Following on from our post detailing our range of 1100 Lathes, here are a few more details on our 1642 model.
This machine comes in a the top of the range for our wood lathes, featuring a high level of adjustability, reliability and quality. The 1642 has a variable speed inverter drive, and huge torque in the low speed setting facilitated by the powerful 1.1kw motor. To monitor performance and speed, a digital rev counter comes as standard.
Cast iron construction means maximum rigidity throughout, while the precision grounded bedways ensure a high level of accuracy at all speeds. The head rotates, with index locations at 45°, 90°, 135°, 180°, 270° and 360°, while the tailstock, tool rest and head all have lever cam action locks for fast positive locking.
Accessories supplied with the lathe include a faceplate as well as both revolving and drive centres. We also supply a full range of spares and accessories for this machine, such as chisels, centres and a huge variety of additional tools.
