We’d like to introduce our first woodworking mini lathe… the Wahuda model 60170ML-WHD
It utilizes the very reliable inverter technology, usually found on much larger machines, to keep constant torque at various speed settings. Electronic variable speed is a desirable feature for wood turners, enabling fine tuning of speed to suit delicate work, larger diameters or out of balance work pieces. A three step poly-V pulley system allows three speed ranges, 0 to 800, 0 to 1750, and 0 to 3600 rpm, which when coupled with the load sensing inverter, ensure maximum torque and stable spindle speeds.
The included magnetic backed wired remote switch can be placed on any convenient position on the lathe bed or the headstock to suit the work in hand. It incorporates on/off buttons, a speed control knob, and a forward and reverse switch.
A LED digital read-out of the spindle speed in RPM, located on the base of the unit, is a useful feature that helps to control your work.
With a maximum of 16″ (400mm) between centers, (distance will vary with type of drive center or accessory used) and a 14″ (350mm) swing over the bed, the capacity offered is generous on a lathe this compact. Spindle indexing is achieved in 15 degree segments by insertion of the included magnetic index dowel pin. The 6 ” tool rest sports a sturdy tool post diameter of 1 “. Headstock and tailstock spindle tapers are # 2MT, with a drive spindle thread of 1 1/4 – 8 TPI RH threads , and drive spindle hole diameter of 3/8 “.
At 90lbs the lathe is heavy enough to be very stable but can still be moved around you shop. It’s compact size, at 32 ” L x 17 ” H x 13 ” D still provides plenty of capacity to show off your skills. Threaded holes (3/8″-16 UNC) are provided at each corner of the lathe for bench mounting. And the 120V AC 13 AMP motor gives you plenty of power to get the job done.
Also included are a 4 prong drive center (already installed in headstock), standard 60 degree live center (already installed in tailstock), drive knock out push rod, carrying handles with mounting screws, power cable storage hooks with mounting screws, spanner wrench for faceplate removal and installation, hex wrenches for set up, and the User Manual.
