The 360° swivelling head means that you can still turn larger bowls comfortably in a reasonably compact space, using the included bowl turning attachment.

The control switch on the headstock has a safety off button and reversing switch, which makes sanding much easier and safer. Cam action levers make adjustments fast and easy; their rubber grips provide good ergonomics.This is a lathe that is well regarded in the USA, now available in the UK, offering a simple, no fuss alternative lathe that you can depend on.
