Join professional woodturner Colwin Way RPT in store as they introduce you to the lathe that all turners aspire to own - the Robust American Beauty Lathe. Built without compromise and made to last, these lathes can be fully customised to create a unique machine, specific to the turner's needs. Now we’re giving you the chance to see this premium lathe in action, gain a better understanding of its far reaching capabilities and have your questions answered. You’ll even have the chance to get up close and see the quality for yourself!
Every little detail and accessory of this lathe has been carefully considered and manufactured, making it ergonomically comfortable, flexible, and easy to use for any turner. During this FREE demonstration, Colwin will focus solely on the lathe* showcasing the features that set it apart from many others, including but not exhaustive;
- Tilt-away, with one hand the Tailstock can be swept back and replaced by a section of stainless bed that accommodates the tool rest. A huge advantage to hollow form and bowl turning enthusiasts, as tool access is quick and easy.
- Castor and Jack Kit, allows this 360 kg lathe to be easily moved around a workshop, by just one person!
- 16inch Bed Extension, increases turning capacity by an extra 406mm.
Steady Rest, prevents vibration when turning long and thin projects between centres and ensures accuracy
- Low profile rest, for spindle turners that like to wrap their fingers around the tool rest when turning.
Exclusive to Axminster Tools within the UK, this is a rare opportunity to see this world class machine in action but spaces are limited to only 20 people in each session, so please book your place now.
