Effortless Turning, Quality Results.
The new Sherwood MC-1420 lathe is an all-new midi lathe body design. With a 350mm (14in) swing and 510mm between centres it is well-suited to a great variety of projects. Of course it comes with all the standard sizes for attachments - M30 headstock for face plates/chucks; #2 Morse Tapers in both the head and tailstocks for spindle turning. And the heavy-duty banjo has a 1in (25.4mm) post design to give you maximum access to accessories.
The lathe has a three-pulley system to move in between optimal size ranges and comes with a quality DC motor and resistor-based electronic variable speed system commonly found on lathes in this price bracket. It is a simple and proven system that works well and is reliable - so reliable that it is the only lathe with this system that is covered with a Five Year Warranty.
This lathe has serious capacity, construction and build quality all the way through it - from the handwheel on the headstock through to the handwheel on the tailstock - but it doesn't take up ridiculous amounts of space and tucks away beautifully in if needed. Best of all it's sturdy build and durable frame mean it's reliable. It comes with Sherwood's Five Year Warranty - so you know you're going to be able to rely on it for many years to come.
