A 400 Watt lathe, designed for turning wood.

It comes with an adjustable tool-rest as well as two different chucks for on the spindle nose. A flat face-plate for turning bowls/balls and a dead-center chuck that is used to turn long losts/beams stuck between it and the tailstock at the rear.

It comes with two black-painted spanners made from press-cut steal, as well as a hex-key to secure certain parts on the lathe.

Speed-adjustment can be performed by adjusting the belt-positions on the pulleys behind the bolt-locked door on the left side of the device. Be sure to unplug the device before attempting this.

The device has a magnet-based safety-switch that will prevent it from spinning up when plugged in when accidentally left switched on.
