VL300 Short SM EVS 2HP

The VL300 Short Stand Mount EVS (Electronic Variable Speed) lathe is the little brother to the VL300 SM EVS 2.2kW lathe. It comes with a powerful 1.5kW motor (2HP).

The electronic variable speed drive gives up to 200% torque on low rpm. 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 lathe is fitted with all control buttons (including reverse) on the stand below the headstock for easy access.

The cast iron lathe is mounted on a 4mm thick steel stand, which has been designed with a 700mm wide footprint for stability and rigidity.

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

Note: with 1000mm extension bed you will require an extension bed leg.

The VL300 SM 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.
  • Digital speed readout located below the headstock that displays the actual spindle RPM.
  • Hindged headstock door for ease of use and an ergonomic Toolrest.
  • Remote Magnetic Switch box can be fitted as an optional extra.
