Now the most popular lathe on the Australian market - and with good reason.
At an extremely affordable price this lathe has all the features most woodturners want. It has a solid cast-iron bed; suitable for absorbing vibration and comes with the stand, a 150mm face plate, spur drive, live centre and knockout bar as standard. The headstock can be swivelled for outboard turning with the included bed extension and the tool rest can be mounted to reach the work piece.
The majority of lathe manufacturers on the market produce similar machines: they look okay at first glance but are untested, undisciplined operations that aren't run by real woodworkers, for real woodworkers. As a result, you simply can't find the fit and finish - whether it's the smooth, timeless design of the handles or the cast of the headstock and tailstocks, any where else for this price point.
Put simply, these lathes are way ahead of the pack. While other models have smaller toolrests and small toolrest holders, meaning you're stuck with an irregular shape for the rest of your woodturning life, every fitting on this lathe is specifically designed to fit the industry standard and the widest possible range of accessories. Then there's all the extra fittings, fantastic additions like tool holders that make them the best of the bunch.
This design is intentionally simple - there's very little that can go wrong with this machine. But what makes it special is, as we keep repeating, the Sherwood Difference. We've been woodworking for 30 years and we test every feature to ensure that the little touches are a streak ahead of the competition, while maintaining a sturdy robust design that's effortlessly reliable. We'd have it no other way.
Why a Sherwood lathe?
Perfect for any woodturner that needs to move their lathe around or has space restrictions. It's been purpose-built on a smaller scale but is by no means a lightweight, with industry-standard morse tapers and threads so unlike some of its larger competitors, it's great when performing at its maximum capacity.
It has a punchy motor and the fixed head design ensures it performs smoothly when either bowl or spindle turning.
