Vicmarc VL240 ASM EVS 2.0HP Lathe

The VL240 Lathes have a swivel head feature which allows for the headstock to turn its normal straight position out to 90 degrees. There are four individual pin-lock positions at increments of 22.5 degrees which aid in turner comfort when turning inside vessels and bowls.

Headstock positioned at 90 degrees. The headstock can be positioned in 4 positions 0, 30, 60 & 90 degrees. An outboard turning attachment can be purchased as an optional extra

Separate electronic variable speed box that can be mounted away from the lathe and a magnetic switch box that can be positioned anywhere you are working.
