Need a solid cast-iron lathe with big capacity? Well, look no further, because this 18" x 47" Wood Lathe has it all! You'll appreciate the cast-in shelf brackets for adding additional mass, variable-speed control in two torque ranges, digital speed indicator, forward and reverse switch and convenient utility basket. Single-phase frequency drive technology provides the electronic variable-speed control without the three-phase power requirement. All you need is standard 220 Volt, single-phase power to be up and running in no time. You'll be amazed by all the quality and innovative features this lathe has to offer!
We changed from a (brushless) DC motor to a 3-phase AC motor for several reasons. It's quieter, electrically more efficient, and provides smoother power output - especially at slower speeds. The DC motor design can be a bit choppy at slower speeds, and while most users wouldn't notice this, we decided it was worth the upgrade. Also, 3-phase AC motors are the most reliable motor design that there is. So the change improves both the performance and reliability of an already outstanding heavy-duty wood lathe.
