VL300 Short ASM EVS 3HP

The VL300 Short Adjustable Stand Mount EVS (Electronic Variable Speed) lathe has been designed to suit most wood turners. The electronic variable speed drive gives up to 200% torque on low rpm and it comes with a powerful 2.2kw (3HP) motor. The three-step pulleys provide 3 ratios 1:1 for small to medium size work; 1:1.5 for medium to large work; and 1:3 for large work.

The cast iron lathe is mounted on a 5mm thick steel plate stand, which has been designed with a 700mm wide footprint for stability and rigidity. The stand also features wood shaving discharge chute and a knee stop bar.

All VL300 lathe models accept an extension bed at either end of the bed. A 500mm or 1000mm bolt on extension bed is available and multiple extensions can be added on.

The VL300 AMS EVS has been upgraded and now includes these following new features!

  • Precision machined face on both ends of the bed for bolt on extension bed or swing away tailstock support.
  • Hindged headstock door for ease of use and an ergonomic Toolrest.
  • Another great new feature on this lathe is the indexing pin safety switch. This prevents accidental start up while the indexing pin is engaged.
  • Digital speed readout located below the headstock that displays the actual spindle RPM.

This model lathe can also be fitted with a mushroom twist stop bottom and additional limit switches on the headstock and motor doors making it comply to regulations for lathes in schools; Part No. P01115
