A great little performer at an even better price!
This mini-lathe has been specially designed for entrance to intermediate hobbyist woodworkers. Don't get us wrong, it still has serious capacity - with 550W of power at spindle speeds of up to 3000rpm, 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.
Why a Sherwood mini 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.
