The AC355WL is a new design, perfect for those woodturners looking to move up from a smaller lathe, or as a first lathe for the more ambitious newcomer.

Like almost all top quality lathes, this one is made from grey cast iron. The extra stability and vibration absorbing properties will be much appreciated during use. Featuring a top quality DC brush motor, with variable speed, 3 belt ratios and reverse, it has a speed range to suit every project within its size capacities. A spindle speed readout helps select the appropriate speed for the job. The tailstock is angle towards the end of the bed, maximising the distance between centres, but is also extremely stiff. Cam locks secure both the tailstock and toolrest holder, and both are easy to move along the bed. The headstock is very smooth in design, with a projected nose for the back of the bowl turning, large bearings to support the spindle, and a flip-up cover allowing access to the gate's multi-V belt for speed ratio changing.

There is a system to provide a 24-stop indexing facility, with a spring-loaded indent pin to hold the spindle into position. The spindle thread is M33 x 3.5, allowing many accessories to be fitted, or use its 2MT internal taper to hold centres etc. With a capacity of 510mm between centres (depending on the centres fitted) and with a swing capacity of 355mm, many ambitious projects can be undertaken. Mounted on rubber feet and supplied with Axminster drive and tailstock centres, 200mm tool rest plus a 100mm faceplate.
