    Sherwood Micro Wood Lathe 200mm

    Sherwood’s comprehensive collection of lathes begins with the Micro model as the most compact in the range. It has all the features most woodturners want at an affordable price. The solid cast-iron bed is perfect for absorbing vibration, delivering rock-solid performance. The package includes a face plate, spur drive, live centre and knockout bar, as well as two handy tool rest sizes, especially useful for tiny turning! 

    The Sherwood Micro Lathe is perfect for any woodturner that needs to move their lathe around or has space restrictions. It has been purpose-built on a smaller scale but is by no means a lightweight. With industry-standard morse tapers and threads, unlike some of its larger competitors, it excels when performing at its maximum capacity.  


    True Electronic Variable Speed

    True electronic variable speed (EVS) means you're no longer at the mercy of the simple manual three pulley system. If you need the best possible level of control, maximising your accuracy and the perfection of your turning for any project you can dream of, then EVS is essential. In addition, forward and reverse settings allow you to hollow out your projects with ease, keeping eyes on what you’re doing, as well as allowing the cleanest finish. The power is in your hands. 

    This design is intentionally simple - there's very little that can go wrong with this machine. But what makes it special is the Sherwood Difference. We've been woodworking for 30 years and we test every feature to ensure that the little touches are ahead of the competition, while maintaining a sturdy robust design that's effortlessly reliable.  

    5-Year Warranty

    All Sherwood products feature a standard 5-Year limited warranty. No other wood lathe in its class is more supported than the Sherwood Micro Variable Speed Wood Lathe.

    Small but sturdy

    Just because this Micro lathe has the nice feature of portability, that doesn’t mean that any quality is compromised! The cast-iron body removes vibration and ensures longevity, whilst the compact build allows this lathe to go wherever you go.  

    True Electronic Variable Speed

    The motor speed is adjusted easily and simply using the speed control knob. Use high speeds for workpieces requiring clean finishes and light cuts, and low speeds for removing large quantities of materials and rough cuts. Or, you know best, pick a speed somewhere in the middle!  

    Perfect for small projects

    Pens, pipes, flutes or trinket bowls… the possibilities are endless! Whatever your next small project is going to be, this lathe is perfect for the job. 


    The included live and spur centres, face plate, knock-out bar and small & large tool rests, means you’re ready to get turning straight out of the box!  

    Quick repositionable levers

    The convenient lock handles allow you to quickly readjust the settings of your lathe as needed. They can even be tightened further than factory settings if the locking is not tight enough for your needs.  

    Cable Management

    The handy rear cable management ensures safe and secure power to your machine, removing the risk of catching the cables with your workpiece or tools. 

    Forward and reverse functions

    Forward and reverse functions allow you to hollow out your projects with ease, keeping eyes on what you’re doing, as well as allowing the cleanest finish as you sand in both directions. 

    5-Year Warranty

    The Sherwood Micro Wood Lathe comes with a 5-year warranty as standard, so you can relax and get on with your turning knowing that you are covered.
