10" x 18" Lathe #70-105 was designed specifically at the request of pen turners who wanted a sturdy, dedicated machine for their craft. This scaled-down, basic mini lathe is constructed of cast iron so vibration is not a factor, unlike other lathes made of aluminum. 5 Speed ranges cover the bases for boring barrel holes, roughing out pen billets, turning to shape and finishing. Lathe includes a live center, tool rest, knock-out bar and wrenches.
1/2 Motor provides ample power for all turning needs
Heavy cast iron bed, headstock and tailstock reduce vibration
Machined bed and matching components give precise alignment
