450 x 300mm Mini Woodlathe - Electronic Variable Speed

  • 450 x 300mm Mini Woodlathe - Electronic Variable Speed SWL-1218-VS

    There's just good, then there's Sherwood.

    Introducing the new Electronic Variable Speed woodlathe, equipped with electronically-controlled speed adjustment. This new EVS model retains the range's renowned reliability and three-pully system, but adds the latest in woodturning technology, to make your lathe work easier, more accurate and more enjoyable.

    This variable speed mini-lathe has been specially designed as the upper-echelon model available for entrance to intermediate hobbyist woodworkers. In fact, the morse tapers and variable speed ensure that anybody with space restrictions, no matter their level of expertise, can get serious value from this machine.

    With an enhanced user-experience the focus behind Sherwood's new range, their time-tested manual speed models also get an overhaul, with improved height, toolrests and wheels just the beginning.

    Why a variable speed mini-lathe?

    It still has serious capacity - with 550W of power at variable spindle speeds of up to 3800rpm, it would be a waste of time if it didn't - but it's also easily mobile, it doesn't take up ridiculous amounts of space so it tucks away beautifully in a garage and best of all it's reliable.

    It was a 5-year warranty and it's pick up and play, meaning if you don't use it everyday you don't have to worry about deterioration. This lathe is built to last.
