Revo 18|36 Lathe

Everything about this lathe is designed for the user. Strength, stability and control are at the heart throughout to satisfy true specialists and woodturning professionals.

One of the striking features of the lathe is an ergonomic panel with controls mounted in an anodized aluminium plate. The speed is smoothly controlled with a tactile rubber augmented knurled aluminium dial. Add the blue hue of the speed indicator and this machine stands out from the competition.

The solid bed, with an impressive width of 208mm, is made of high-quality steel ASTM A36 (tougher than cast iron), and is precisely ground providing smooth travel of the headstock, tailstock and toolrest. The spindle is run by a highly efficient induction motor with a VFD frequency convertor for high torque even at lower speeds. The speed range can be changed with a clever one-lever mechanism.

The headstock, tailstock and legs of the lathe are made from cast-iron securing minimum vibration and high comfort for turning of oversized pieces. Tailstock and Headstock cam lock levers are placed on the back of the machine and will not get in the way. All cam lock levers have soft grip handles and a long length resulting in a firm feel with no deflection.

Supplied with 2MT four prong drive centre, 2MT revolving tail centre, 75mm (3") diameter faceplate, knock-out bar, onboard storage for accessories, 1.8m power cable with UK 3 pin plug. 

Optional Accessories

Expansion Set: The 500mm (20”) extension bed fitted to the end of the main bed, increases the maximum spindle capacity to a huge 1410mm (56"). A riser block allows the tailstock to travel out to this full length. By sliding the headstock along to the end of the main bed, the bowl turning capacity is also increased to an impressive 800mm (32"). A tool rest post extension completes the set.

Swing Away Tailstock: A fast and convenient way to move the tailstock out of the way is this hinged extension bed, which can quickly be unclipped and swings the bed and tailstock away.  

Heavy Duty Wheel Kit: Attaches to each end of the floor stand. With foot lever action, assisted by a gas strut to take the weight, moving this heavy lathe around is a breeze.  

Comparitor: The comparitor set is a method of mounting a spindle to be copied so that it sits at eye level. The work piece can then be easily compared to the template.

Independent Reviews

" Someone clearly put a lot of thought into this machine. The 2-hp motor is very powerful, and adjusting the speed is smooth and quiet. The conical nose on the headstock is a great feature that will aid in power sanding and removing tenons from the bottoms of bowls. The tailstock has all the features it should have, most importantly a locking mechanism that holds it securely to the bed " […] Read More
