Axminster Professional AP406WL Woodturning Lathe

The AP406WL is a medium sized woodturning lathe from the Axminster Professional range and it is a very popular choice among discerning woodturners. We are so impressed with its quality and performance that we decided to equip our Woodworking Wisdom studios with several of these lathes as soon as we could which is featured on our Woodworking Wisdom YouTube channel.

Heavy Duty Cast Iron Construction

The robust construction provides strength, whilst dampening vibration. The brush finish on the bed surface allows smooth movement of the banjo and tailstock.

Electronic Variable Speed Control Unit

Enables fine tuning of speed to suit delicate work, larger diameters or out of balance work pieces. The magnetic backed switch unit can be placed on any convenient position on the lathe bed or headstock to suit the work in hand.

LED Digital Read-Out

An LED digital read-out of the spindle speed in RPM is a useful feature that helps control your work.

1.5kW (2HP) Motor & Variable Frequency Inverter Drive (VFD)

Fitted with a quality variable frequency inverter drive (VFD) ensures super smooth starting, acceleration and deceleration which is all powered by a 1.5kW (2HP) motor.

Distance Between Centres

There’s 710mm (28") between centres and a 406mm (16") swing over the bed capacity.

Supplied with genuine Axminster Woodturning centres

This lathe is supplied with genuine Axminster Woodturning Four Prong Drive and Revolving Tailstock Centres; both designed and manufactured in Axminster, UK.

Headstock

The headstock can be slid along the full length of the bed and swivelled through 360° with indexing stops every 30°.

Banjo

Made from cast iron construction with an easy to use, cam lock lever, a 25.4mm (1”) stem provides strength and support for the tool and helps reduce vibration.

Tailstock

The tailstock has a long ram travel of 112mm. A long cam clamp lever locks the tailstock firmly in place and is easy to adjust. Hollow tailstock allows the centres to be removed, and also allows access to use long hole boring augers.

3 Year Guarantee

For complete peace of mind, we cover all parts and labour free of charge for three years.

The AP406WL is a medium sized woodturning lathe and a very popular choice among discerning woodturners. We are so impressed with its quality and performance that we decided to equip our Woodworking Wisdom studios with several of these lathes as soon as we could which is featured on our Woodworking Wisdom YouTube channel. 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.

The AP406WL 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. The headstock can be rotated for better access when turning a bowl and 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 also 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 355mm tool rest, Axminster four prong drive centre, Axminster revolving tailstock centre, centre alignment bar,150mm faceplate, and a knockout bar.

N.B. The distance between centres will vary and be dependent on the type of centres or accessories fitted.
