The AC370WL is a powerful cast iron woodturning lathe with plenty of capacity and a powerful motor to match the larger capabilities. This floor standing woodturning lathe has several major features that set it apart for lathes within a similar range.
The centre height is a full 185mm giving it a massive 370mm maximum diameter for turning a bowl over the bed.
The distance between centres is a very useful 1,100mm for turning longer spindles and similar items. The headstock swivels and can slide along the length of the bed, giving the facility to set the headstock in the most convenient position to suit the work. The speed change system has ten steps which gives a wide range of speed options. With a simple twist of a lever you can switch between the following speeds;
Step 1 - 500 rpm
Step 2 - 620 rpm
Step 3 - 760 rpm
Step 4 - 900 rpm
Step 5 - 1050 rpm
Step 6 - 1210 rpm
Step 7 - 1400 rpm
Step 8 - 1590 rpm
Step 9 - 1790 rpm
Step 10 - 2000 rpm
