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.


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.

Make sure that the chuck is tightened with tools before use.

Note Note: If chuck and work-piece is heavy reduce the speed slowly otherwise there is a danger of the chuck unscrewing itself due to the momentum.
