This 1.5 HP lathe has an intelligent direct-drive digital motor from Straitech and an easy-to-use software-driven controller that provides smooth performance, intelligent control, and power under load. This floor version includes a heavy-duty floor stand and 15” over bed swing with 18” between centers. Speed can be adjusted from 100 - 4,000 rpm with no sacrifice in torque. Please note that operating under 100 rpm is not recommended for turning and should be for drying or sanding only. The 360° swiveling headstock locks at any position and includes locating pin detents at 0°, 22.5°, 45°, 90°, and 180°. The 4″ tailstock is self-ejecting. The bed has CAD designed webbing to absorb vibration throughout the bed length and provide exceptional structural strength. The motor also monitors motor conditions, providing the right power to maintain the speed set when varying loads are applied to the workpiece. As the cutting force varies, the computer only draws enough power to meet the conditions and maintain speed, saving up to 80% in power consumption.
