The AT1416VS utilises the very reliable inverter technology usually found on much larger machines. Electronic variable speed is a desirable feature for woodturners, enabling fine tuning of speed to suit larger diameters or out of balance workpieces. A three step poly-vee pulley system allows three speed ranges which ensure maximum torque at all speeds. A versatile magnetic switch unit can be placed at a convenient position on the lathe to suit the work in hand and incorporates on/off buttons, a speed control knob and a forward and reverse switch. An LED digital read-out of the lathe speed in RPM is a useful feature and 400mm(16″) between centres and a 350mm(14″) swing over the bed capacity is unusual on a lathe this compact. Spindle indexing is achieved in 15° segments by insertion of a magnetic dowel pin. Threaded holes (3/8″x16 UNC) are provided at each corner of the lathe for bench mounting. Tool post diameter 1″ (25.4mm). Supplied with 4 prong Axminster drive centre, Axminster revolving tailstock centre, 3″ faceplate and a knock out bar.
