The AT406VS is a medium sized woodturning lathe from our Trade Series range and it is a very popular choice among discerning woodturners. We are so impressed with its quality and performance that we have decided to equip our Skill Centre with several of these lathes. Supplied as a bench top model with the option to purchase a leg stand if required, the lathe and leg stand are of heavy cast iron construction to minimise vibration. It features electronic variable speed supplied via an inverter with two speed ranges for maximum torque at low speeds. The advantage of variable speed is that you can fine tune the speed of the lathe to the work in hand. This is especially important when turning large or out of balance workpieces and it is so convenient for fast speed changes. Spindle indexing is provided at 10° intervals and a magnetic control console with start/stop, speed control and forward/reverse can be conveniently positioned for the work in hand. Everything about the lathe feels just right, with cam-lock action of the tool rest banjo and tailstock, all controls work smoothly and effortlessly. A swivelling headstock can be very useful, especially if bench mounting the lathe but it will also slide along to the tailstock end of the bed. This allows the turning of larger diameter bowls and platters off the end of the bed and increases the capacity considerably. A 460mm bed extension kit is available as an optional extra and this can be bolted onto either end of the lathe bed. If you have the lathe fitted to the cast iron leg stand it can be attached in a lower position offering an impressive 875mm swing over the bed. This is achieved by moving the tool rest banjo down onto the bed extension and fitting the tool rest extension post supplied with the bed extension kit. If you are serious about your woodturning and want a lathe that offers excellent performance, features and value, this lathe would be a sound choice. Supplied with Axminster four prong drive centre, Axminster revolving tailstock centre, 150mm (6")faceplate and a knockout bar.

This machine was previously known as the AT1628VS.
