10" x 18" Mini Lathe was designed specifically at the request of pen turners who wanted a sturdy, dedicated machine for their craft. This scaled-down, basic mini lathe is constructed of cast iron so vibration is not a factor, unlike other lathes made of aluminum. 5 speed ranges cover the bases for boring barrel holes, roughing out pen billets, turning to shape and finishing. 

Capable of turning bowls up to 12-1/2" diameter, 20" spindles or as long as needed just by adding one or more bed extensions (sold separately). From turning pens to platters, this small lathe is used and appreciated by every level of wood turner for it's simplicity and versatility.
