Designed for today’s woodturners, the No.1 Wood Lathe is one of the strongest high-torque wood turning lathes on the market. It is powered by a 3HP, 230V, PMDC motor and a 3HP state-of-the-art pulse-width modulated
(PWM) drive with three speed ranges: 0-600, 0-1200 and 0-2000.
Weighing in at 750 lbs, the Basic Package has a 20″ swing and 20″ between centers. The system has optional 18″ and 40″ inboard beds and 18″ and 36″ outboard beds with a remote magnetically attached on/off switch. The 3HP Minarik© PWM motor drive provides very clean, high lowend torque with adjustable speed pots for current (torque) limit, acceleration and deceleration rates and minimum and maximum speed settings. These are particularly useful in educational settings. The drive runs at 22kHz which is well above audible resulting is a very quiet system. Dynamic braking is standard.
