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
