The current Wood Lathe is a Chinese model - the Charnwood 813 is a close match in terms of Specification.

The lathe has a mechanical speed control using a belt with variable diameter pulleys. It has a high maximum speed.

Tips

The speed control must be set to a Low Speed before switch on. Once you've completed turning your part, the speed must be returned to a low speed before switching off.
